B-Cycle launch - 44 drop-off points in Moreton Bay Region

Australia's first accredited battery recycling scheme, B-Cycle, has been launched with drop-off points in Moreton Bay Region.

There are currently 44 in this region at such as Aldi and Woolworth stores, Total Tools, TradeTools, Bunnings, Officeworks - and soon Coles.

Developed by the Battery Stewardship Council and supported by $1m from the Federal Government, B-Cycle is about creating a responsible battery lifecycle.

Critical role

“We have given B-Cycle the Government’s tick of approval as an accredited product stewardship scheme: this means that both consumers and industry can be assured that it meets strict environmental and human health standards,” Federal Member for Longman Terry Young said.

“Batteries play a critical role in powering our everyday lives but are also one of Australia’s fastest-growing waste streams.

“Every year, Australians buy enough batteries to circle the planet Earth 2.3 times.”

Batteries contain valuable components like zinc, lithium, cobalt, graphite, and manganese which can be recycled and remade into valuable new products like paint, car tyres, metal tools, computer parts, new batteries, and more.

Collection points

B-Cycle accepts household batteries including button batteries, AAs and AAAs, power tool batteries, camera batteries, and e-bike batteries. 

Find your nearest collection point by visiting bcycle.com.au
