Batteries are not allowed in any household bin because they are a fire hazard. Domestic batteries can be recycled through E-waste recycling stations located at Glen Eira libraries. Other types of batteries can be disposed of at selected waste transfer stations.

Car batteries
Car batteries can be recycled at Waste Transfer Stations. 

Household batteries
Household batteries (e.g. AA, AAA, C, D, 9V and button) can be be recycled at any Glen Eira Libraries e-waste Recycling Station during opening hours. Supermarkets such as Aldi, Woolworths and Coles also have battery recycling at some of their stores. Officeworks also has some battery recycling collection points in-store. 

Other batteries
Other batteries (e.g. power tools) including: Nickel Cadmium (NiCd), Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) and Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) can be recycled for free at Battery World locations, or the Monash Waste Transfer Station.

E-bike batteries

E-bike batteries can be recycled at Monash Recycling and Waste Centre and some 99 Bikes stores. We always recommend calling the recycling centre before you go, to ensure the items you are dropping off are being accepted at the time. 

Please note: Batteries should not go in any of your household general waste or recycling bins.
