Welcome to Component-Shop !

don't bin batteries

As part of our commitment to the environment, Component-Shop are working in conjunction with REPIC who operate as an Approved Battery Compliance Scheme.

● Many batteries contain chemicals that are harmful to the environment when not dealt with correctly.    

The dumping of batteries in your household bin means they will end up in landfill causing pollution.

What types of battery we are accepting?

We are happy to take any types of your portable batteries. This includes:

Alkaline batteries

NiCd (nickel cadmium) batteries

Zinc-Carbon batteries

Lithium batteries

Lead-Acid batteries

Car batteries and many others

What Can I Do?

Most batteries can be recycled which has 2 main benefits;

 Preventing harmful chemicals from reaching landfill sites and contaminating the environment

 By reusing the raw materials in batteries there is less demand on the planets resources

You can visit to find you’re nearest battery recycling point or you can deliver them personally to us.

Dos & Don’ts!

 Don't throw used batteries into your household waste

 Don't send back used batteries in the post as this is illegal and counter productive in helping the environment

 Do use rechargeable batteries, modern rechargeable batteries in most case last longer than standard alkaline batteries in a single charge and can be recharged upto a 1000 times 


The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations

Under the Waste Battery regulations, Component-Shop are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. (regardless of whether purchased from us or not) You can return your waste batteries to our business premises in person (please do not post). Alternatively, you can find your local recycling facility at

WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

 Much of the UK’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.

 Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.

Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.

Component-Shop is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.

Do not throw batteries into general waste bin

Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.

 If you have any more questions regarding battery recycling please feel free to contact us.
