A Message from Wiltshire Council:

We are pleased to confirm that we will soon be able to collect some types of small batteries as part of our kerbside recycling service.

From 5 December, you will be able to put small household batteries in clear, sealed sandwich bags on top of your blue lidded bin and they will be collected for recycling. Please do not put batteries out for collection earlier than this date.

The batteries you can put out for collection are ‘D’, ‘C’, ‘AA’, ‘AAA’, 9V and button-type batteries, and these will be kept separate from other recyclable materials on board the collection vehicles.
