We all know that batteries are used in a variety of electrical devices as well as in vehicles and in the UK we get through around 620 million a year. If these aren’t disposed of properly and safely they can be harmful to the environment.
Inside a battery there are some very harmful chemicals such as nickel and cadmium, creating a toxic mixture once we are through using them. Batteries can be found in households, commercial buildings and the service industry, which means there are huge amounts of batteries to be disposed of.
At the SafeGroup we fully comply with all regulations and legislation when dealing with the collection of hazardous waste. We transport your batteries and dispose of them safely and legally to give you peace of mind.
Our team can even provide full legislative paperwork to give you the complete assurance that your batteries have been disposed of in the proper manner and in accordance with law.
At SafeGroup we have a team of highly skilled staff who specialise in Batteries Collection and Disposal. We offer this service across the United Kingdom.
To learn more about how we can help you dispose of unwanted or depleted batteries, talk to our friendly team today – we’re always happy to help.

In order to provide you with an estimate or quote, we will need to gather information from you first. We sometimes request pictures which can be emailed through to our team. In some instances, we may conduct a site visit and survey, this can be arranged at a time that's convenient for you.
We provide you with a formal estimate or quote for the scope of works required. Once signed and confirmed, the job is scheduled and our operational team is fully briefed, ready to go!
Our team arrives on site to carry out the scope of work. Relevant paperwork (and sometimes certificates) are provided for your records. This is to confirm the job has been completed to the highest standard.
