Light Globe and Battery Recycling

Central Coast Council have implemented a free recycling program for residents to bring in their unwanted household batteries (AA, AAA, C, D, 6V, 9V, Button), compact fluorescent light globes and fluorescent tubes to collection points around the Central Coast.

Batteries and fluorescent lights contain harmful elements such as mercury, alkaline and lead acid, which can cause major environmental hazards, and can also pose health risks if they end up in landfill.

Collection points and acceptable materials are:
