Hi Stefan

Thank you for your enquiry, it can be tricky to know how to recycle item-specific batteries like these.

It is important to not place any batteries in any of your kerbside bins – batteries, including vacuum batteries, can cause fires in waste collection vehicles and facilities.

Recycle them safely and don't waste the valuable materials inside like lead, cadmium, mercury, lithium, nickel and zinc. Check Recycle Mate to find your closest drop-off point – there are many locations across Australia collecting vacuum, power tool and other types of batteries for safe recycling.

I hope this helps!
