Local authorities

Under the producer responsibility scheme for batteries a number of statutory collection forms have been established for the three types of batteries:

  • portable batteries
  • industrial batteries
  • automotive batteries


Local authorities are responsible for the collection of all portable batteries and they must establish collection options in the vicinity of end-users. Collection schemes may be collect-schemes from end-users, placement of collection equipment at central collection points or similar. Thus, it is not sufficient for the municipalities only to collect batteries from the citizens through municipal recycling centres.
