Batteries and small electrical items

Please do not put batteries of any size or small electrical items like kettles or toasters in your black or green bin. We will not empty it. Batteries can be very dangerous and even cause fires in bin lorries or at our recycling sorting site. 

Take Charge raises awareness of the damage batteries can cause, if disposed of incorrectly.

Many electrical retailers, supermarkets and household recycling centres accept batteries that are no longer working or of use.

E-cigarettes and vapes

Please remove the battery and recycle it separately at a battery recycling point (available in many shops or at household recycling centres) 

The rest of the e-cigarette/vape can be recycled in the small electrical appliances container at either Kidderminster or Stourport household recycling centres. 

Problems with recycling sites 

We aim to keep the recycling banks looking as clean and tidy as possible by emptying them regularly and tidying around them. However, if you should spot any problems please contact us. Please be aware that leaving items next to a bank is classed as flytipping, for which you may be fined.
