Battery Recycling

Recycle your used batteries to conserve valuable resources and protect our soil and waterways.

A pile of assorted batteries

Did you know? The exterior of a battery will decompose in about 100 years, exposing the heavy metals inside, which will never decompose and are toxic to the environment.

Clearly, it's pretty critical to make sure we are disposing of batteries correctly!

Small quantities

Small quantities of single-use batteries (AAA to D) can be recycled at battery and mobile phone recycling stations located at all campuses. These stations are located in the student central hubs of each campus.

Large quantities 

Areas that use large quantities of batteries can request a battery bucket to collect used items. Once full, go to the Infrastructure website and Request a Service (caretaking) to have your batteries picked up and recycled.  

Lead acid batteries 

To dispose of lead acid batteries, contact SA Battery Sales and Recycling Centre on 08 8359 5030 and arrange a free pick up.
