Ask your garage to replace it
Take it to a recycling centre
Your local recycling centre will accept most types of household waste, including vehicle batteries, without charge.
Some businesses – such as licensed, authorised treatment facilities (vehicle dismantlers), metal recycling companies and other waste removal / treatment companies – might accept your battery without charge in return for the value of the scrap metal.
Contact your manufacturer
As a producer of automotive batteries under the Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations 2009, we, Vauxhall Motors Ltd, are obliged to collect on request, free of charge and within a reasonable time, our waste automotive batteries for treatment and recycling from final holders e.g. dealer, scrap yards, end-of-life vehicle Authorised Treatment Facilities, Civic Amenity Sites, etc.
If you require support on the take back process of our automotive batteries (starter batteries), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The necessary arrangements for the collection, proper treatment and recycling of the waste automotive batteries will be undertaken.
Manufacturers of electrically powered or hybrid vehicles are obliged by law to arrange for the treatment and recycling of the batteries that power them when they become waste.
