Batteries, BBQs and (gas) bottles

Posted on 3 June 2019

You’ve probably heard us talk about this before, but the effects of putting these materials into the wrong bin can be pretty serious so we’re mentioning it again…

Please never put items such as disposable BBQs, batteries or gas bottles into any of your bins at home. Items like this have the potential to start fires and in some cases even explode.

We know most of you reading this newsletter know all about this, but you can help us by ensuring the message gets through to family, friends and neighbours.

Remember you can recycle your household batteries by placing them in a designated container at your local HWRS, or by taking them to a supermarket or high street shop that sell batteries.

Disposable BBQs must be fully extinguished. It is advised to wait at least 48 hours before wrapping the cold coals in aluminium foil and disposing of them in the general waste. Alternatively cold and fully extinguished BBQs can be taken to your local HWRS.

Gas bottles can also be taken to your local HWRS. These will be returned to the issuing company and refilled for further use. Alternatively, you can return it to the place where you purchased the bottle.
