Central Coast Council has implemented a free battery recycling program for residents (such as AA, AAA, C, D, 6V, 9V and button batteries), compact fluorescent light globes and fluorescent tubes around the Central Coast.

Batteries and fluorescent lights contain harmful elements such as mercury, alkaline and lead acid, which can cause major environmental hazards. They can also pose health risks if they are landfilled.
