BATTERY RECYCLING

Whilst Close the Loop is well known for its environmental takeback programs, batteries are a very specialist stream. Close the Loop provides its reverse logistics capability and Customer Service infrastructure to deliver a national batteries collection program. Let’s keep batteries out of landfill and encourage everyone to recycle batteries.

Battery Recycling Partnership

Close the Loop is partnering with Envirostream to develop a safe and innovative battery collection and recycling solution in Australia.

Envirostream have a recovery rate of in excess of 95% and all batteries are recycled in Australia. No batteries are sent offshore for processing. This is a key deliverable of the program, and fundamental to why Close the Loop is partnering with Envirostream.

Recovery Rate
Impact on Environment

Batteries contain harmful substances including mercury, cadmium and lead. These chemicals and materials can be dangerous if mixed with other waste streams and cause damage to the environment if placed in landfill.

To help keep batteries out of landfill and encourage everyone to recycle batteries, Close the Loop offers a national battery recycling service for everyone. The different types of both single-use batteries and rechargeable batteries that we collect and recycle are listed below.

Battery Collection Boxes

Close the Loop provide battery collection boxes (certified UL94) that are certified for secure storage and road transport.

Close the Loop provides door to door service nationally across Australia. When you are part of our program you don’t have to worry about organising your transport to have collection boxes returned for battery recycling.
