Battery Recycling

Recycling is no longer a luxury. It’s a necessity.

It is estimated that over 50 million batteries are consumed in South Africa annually, 90% of which, are ordinary batteries, which are used once and then discarded into household refuse. The average South African uses 6 battery-operated products in their day-to-day lives. These devices range from TV Remotes to Clocks to kids toys.

When it's time to replace these batteries, the old ones are being discarded into our general household refuse. This equates to approximately 2500 tons worth of hazardous battery waste being disposed into landfills each year, and growing. These discarded batteries eventually degrade and corrode, leaking their toxic chemicals into our earth & ground water. We live on a planet with limited resources and limited space.

Uniross and Pick n Pay have joined forces in an attempt to preserve our environment, through a "First of it's kind" battery recycling program. The program encourages all battery users to take their old used batteries to their local Pick n Pay store, and discard in the unique Battery Recycling Bin provided.

Show your commitment to preserving our environment by joining Uniross and Pick n Pay in recycling your old batteries today.
