Batteries Obligation (United Kingdom)

As a producer of industrial batteries under the Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations 2009, we, Anixter, produce lead acid batteries. We are obliged to take back free of charge, waste industrial batteries supplied to an end user for treatment and recycling. We are required to do this in any calendar year we place new industrial batteries on the market.

If any of our customers or in certain cases other end users, require us to take back industrial batteries, they should contact us at
