Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
If you need to dispose of batteries that you have used in your business, for example from portable telephones or smoke detectors, you must dispose of them appropriately.
You must ensure that you comply with your waste responsibilities.
You must make sure that your batteries are collected and transported by a registered waste carrier who will dispose of them legally.
To find a licensed waste site to take your batteries, use our waste directory.
Some batteries, including mixed portable and lead acid batteries, are classed as hazardous/special waste. See our guidance on hazardous/special waste for further information.
If you sell, distribute or import batteries into the UK for sale, you must comply with the Batteries Regulations. You may have to offer a free waste battery collection service for your customers.

My Year at NetRegs, A reflection on my time as an intern with the NetRegs team at SEPA. An overview of all the activities and projects I had the opportunity to participate in during my Bright Green Environmental Placement.
A day with Hydrology, SEPA's hydrometry unit is responsible for around 400 gauging stations and 350 rainfall monitoring sites. River gauging stations are important as they allow river levels to be monitored so flood events can be predicted and flood warnings sent out.
