Batteries in municipal waste

Every year, municipalities substantially contribute to the total amount of batteries returned for recycling in the Czech Republic. Pursuant to the Waste Act, municipalities are obliged to provide citizens with collection points for returning batteries that are classified as hazardous municipal waste. However, many municipalities fulfil more than the minimum obligations and actively involve citizens in the collection through promotion of battery sorting and awareness-raising events.


We have a solution for you

We know that both full-time and part-time councillors of municipalities as well as responsible staff have lots of issues to tackle every day. Waste management is just one of many issues on the agenda of each municipality. Since 2002, the ECOBAT collective scheme has been a reliable provider of comprehensive services in battery collection and recycling for towns and villages.
