How to Participate


Battery Waste Producers
At present, there are recycling facilities for rechargeable batteries in Japan and South Korea. Battery waste producers should adopt the good practice instead of simply disposing of the used rechargeable batteries at landfills. Please contact EPD to obtain further information.

Battery Waste Producers


Housing Estate and Commercial/Industrial Building
A convenient collection point can make all the difference in recycling. If it's located near your home or workplace, it's a lot easier to participate. About 1800 housing estates covering over half the population have set up collection points for their residents. About 880 commercial/industrial buildings have done the same (See list of participating estates and buildings). In both cases, the EPD provides cardboard collection boxes, publicity materials and detailed guidance information to organisers.

Property management companies can sign up their premises in a few easy steps.
1. Read the online Guideline on how to organise a rechargeable battery recovery programme in housing estates and commercial/industrial buildings.
2. Complete an Application Form and return it to the Helpdesk.
3. Return the Recovered Batteries Record Form to the Helpdesk. This must be filed by the person responsible for the programme at each participating estate and building.
