When the battery in your vehicle reaches the end of its life, it is important to dispose of it properly.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Please note that disposal of waste industrial and automotive batteries by landfill or by incineration is banned in the UK. 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. Businesses that place electric vehicle batteries onto the UK market have an obligation to arrange for the treatment and recycling of these batteries.
All battery producers in the UK are required to be registered with the Government.
Nissan Motor (GB) is classified as a battery producer in the UK.
Our battery producer registration number is BPRN00300.
You can return your Lead-acid starter battery to any Nissan dealer when a new one is purchased or installed, or you can recycle it at one of the following:
Civic amenity and recycling centres
Local authority battery collection schemes
Licensed End of Life vehicle authorised treatment facilities
Upon request, NMGB will collect waste automotive batteries from a final holder* free of charge as required by the regulations. If you have any queries, please contact Nissan Motor GB.
Nissan electric vehicles contain industrial Lithium batteries. If requested by an end user*, Nissan Motor (GB) will take back these batteries free of charge.
