Battco Ltd – Take back Policy


Battco Ltd launched the Lead Recovery Scheme in 2009, whereby

our customers with larger quantities of batteries for recycling can claim money back on the

Lead with the placement of waste battery bins at customer locations. (see attached Lead Recovery

sheet for information)


We are now registered with the Compliance Scheme Operator, Valpak Ltd, to provide a Battery

Recycling Service for our customers whose waste VRLA batteries do not merit the placement of a

                waste bin. Battco Ltd, in partnership with Valpak, is pleased to offer a completely

free service for portable battery recycling.  A portable battery is any single battery weighing up to

a maximum of 10Kg and is completely sealed. This will be carried out by a fully licensed contractor.


In order to book collection, please call 03450 682572 and select option 3 and then option 2. You can

also email

 This service is ostensibly for a minimum amount of 10Kg, but in order to save on the carbon footprint

the minimum quantity for free collection must be 10 or more batteries of VRLA or SLA type.


For other battery chemistries, please call the general number 08450 682 57 as you may still qualify for

 a free collection depending on the amount and type of material you have.
