Recycle your batteries and power up for a new year


The beginning of a new year is a great opportunity to clean out that ‘junk draw’ and start fresh for the year ahead.

If you’ve got old phones and batteries rattling around remember you can dispose of them at your Griffith Library’s recycling station.

Large e-waste recycling containers are available at the Nathan and Gold Coast libraries. Smaller recycling containers are available at the Logan, Mt Gravatt, South Bank libraries as well as the Eco-Centre at Nathan.

Type of batteries accepted:

  • Laptop batteries
  • Household batteries (e.g. AA, AAA, C, D and coin/button batteries)
  • Whole mobile phones and or batteries

Each year, more than 8,000 tonnes of batteries end up in Australian landfills, and an estimated 16 million out-of-service mobile phones are lying around homes and offices across Australia. It is important to dispose of these safely and help to lessen hazardous waste disposal and its impact on our environment.
