Your responsibilities

What do I need to do?

If you place one or more tonnes of portable batteries on the UK market, you need to join a compliance scheme and contribute to the costs of recycling a percentage of these batteries.

For many businesses, battery compliance and collection and the associated fees can be complex. If your company is expanding in other European territories, this becomes increasingly complicated.

We can simplify this process and increase efficiency.

How ERP makes it easy for your business

Our solutions cover all aspects of battery recycling and can simplify processes for all businesses, small to large.

We offer free battery boxes and collections for your premises, and provide small producers with a fixed compliance cost for the entire year.

  • Under five tonnes

    For businesses that put between one and five tonnes of batteries on the UK market each year, we offer an all-inclusive fee which includes our membership fee, the Environment Agency producer registration fee and all recycling costs.

  • Over five tonnes

    For businesses that place five or more tonnes of portable batteries on the UK market annually, you pay a compliance fee per tonne of obligation only. We only charge you for what we do on your behalf.

How does it all work?

We collect batteries from over 17,500 collection points in the UK: from shops, offices, schools and other public buildings. We use this extensive network to collect the batteries that we need to meet our members’ obligations.
