Lithium battery fires

Lithium batteries have caused fires in the rubbish lorries. Please do not put batteries in your waste or recycling bin. All batteries (including lithium batteries from e-bikes and e-scooters and other re-chargeable devices) can be taken to the Reuse and Recycling Centre at Northumberland Wharf.



The council aims to maintain the air, land and water in the borough to the highest possible quality, investigates noise pollution, hazardous substances and enforces the smoking ban.
