Please be aware that disposal of waste industrial and automotive batteries by landfill or by incineration is banned in the UK from 1 January 2010. If you have an electric powered vehicle, there are specific obligations for producers/importers of such vehicles that are intended to help you deal with the batteries that power these vehicles when they become waste. From 1 January 2010, businesses that place electric vehicle batteries onto the UK market have an obligation to arrange for the treatment and recycling of these batteries. If you have such a battery and need advice, please contact Nissan Motor GB.
All battery producers in the UK are required to be registered with the Government as part of an EU-wide initiative to increase battery collection/recycling and completely prohibit the landfill/incineration of automotive and industrial batteries. Our battery producer registration number is BPRN00300.
If you have any queries concerning battery recycling, please contact Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd.
