I've got a box of old batteries which I need to put in a recycling bin.

I don't know of any battery recycling bins in Southwark. I tend to save mine for a visit to the Household Waste Reuse and Recycling Centre at Manor Place Depot
(off Walworth Road)

You can now drop batteries off for recycling at John Harvard Library in Borough High Street.

You can also send ANY household battery - AAA, AA, C, D, PP3 or button cell to:
Sainsbury's Battery Recycling, FREEPOST ANG20589, PO Box 137, WYMONDHAM NR9 5BR
This freepost address can be used on any Jiffy bag. Batteries should be well wrapped in plastic bag, before they go into the Jiffy bag

Thanks for this - I had been meaning to ask the same question. John Harvard Library is convenient for me.

On a related note, what are we supposed to do with lightbulbs? I know it's bit thick of me, but I've never been sure whether they are supposed to go in with the normal rubbish.

I learned last night at Bermondsey Community Council that energy-saving lightbulbs (which contain mercury) can be dropped off at the Manor Place depot.

Sainsbury's has just informed me that they have suspended their FREEPOST battery recycling scheme. So don't send them your used batteries since I assume they will end up in the bin.

Sainsbury and Tesco also have battery recycling bins - usually near customer service counters - just ask at your local shop
