"City Batteries collect and recycle all of our batteries at the end of their lives, which is a very important part of our business.

I would always recommend City Batteries. They have consistently helped us with the collection of batteries over the years, and I think other companies would be mad not to use them."

What battery type do you need to recycle?

Do you know how much your batteries weigh? 
Very often we will know the weight of your battery by the model number or manufacturer. Please call us so we can assist you.


Are your batteries wet or dry cell? 
Not sure - please call us.

Are your batteries from forklift trucks, UPS backup supply batteries or from the automotive industry?
If you know the brand or battery model number we will be able to give you an instant price over the phone.

Where is your business based?

Based upon your postcode we are happy to quote for a collection.


Other factors to consider.


Do you need containers for the storage and collection of the batteries?
For collection of large volumes you may need pallets for us to pick them up with our forklift.

We can supply pallets and containers.

Out of hours collections for your batteries are possible, for evenings and weekends

Book your time slot for pickup or delivery


After collection or delivery.


When you pick your batteries up we will supply a receipt.

When the batteries arrive at our unit we will weigh and inspect them.
We will confirm the weight and type of battery. At this point we will send a statement for you to invoice against.
