Our battery recycling program is free and easy to use. All the above Bunnings stores have a battery recycling unit, making it convenient for customers and tradies to drop off their used batteries with confidence, knowing they’ll be recycled. That means less waste, keeping harmful substances out of the environment and recovering valuable natural resources.
We sell a wide range of batteries, from household to power tool batteries. With our national battery recycling program, 95 percent of battery components can be reused. That means we’re able to come full-circle, recycling what we sell to be repurposed into new batteries or to be used in other industries.
It's easy! Simply bring your old batteries in-store and deposit them in the collection unit at the front entrance. Then, our recycling partner Envirostream will manage the collection and recycling process.
Our battery recycling units are designed to accept household single use and rechargeable batteries, such as:
We cannot accept lead acid batteries, car batteries, products with embedded batteries or other batteries that do not fit into the battery collection unit slot.
Contamination from unaccepted battery types or other forms of waste in our recycling unit can be a hazard for our Team and customers. Please ask our Team if you're unsure whether your batteries can be accepted in the unit.
The national battery recycling program provides the largest network of household and power tool battery retailer recycling locations in New Zealand, making it easy and convenient for all customers.
