Ensuring safe battery disposal

Batteries are a powerful and convenient energy source, but they are also a major fire risk.

If not stored or disposed of correctly, a seemingly safe battery can ignite and may even explode.

Research among local authorities* found that there were over 700 fires in 2022 due to improper battery disposal – and the problem is increasing.

To help, we’ve created a useful flyer that you can follow to prevent fires, keep our team members safe, avoid any environmental hazards, and limit the potential impact on local fire services.
