Want to get involved?


BatteryBack is proud to be working in partnership with Duracell again and the Big Battery Hunt is back for year two! Be a part of the UK’s biggest school battery recycling programme by registering for your free pupil collection boxes now!

Each pupil will receive a free battery collection box, and you can request a battery container for your school too. Over 4 million batteries were recycled last year – help us to make year two even better!

  • Register your school to receive free recycling boxes for each pupil
  • Use the downloadable resources to teach your pupils the importance of recycling
  • Hand out your pupil recycling boxes and encourage them to get collecting
    • Even if you took part last year, you will need to register for year two to participate again.

      Win Great Prizes

      Each school that books a collection for their batteries will be automatically entered in to the Big Battery Hunt prize draw. By helping us to recycle as many batteries as possible your school could win:

      • A 2-night class trip to the sustainability centre
      • A 3-year subscription to MyMaths worth £1,000
      • £2000 worth of school equipment vouchers
      • iPads
      • Certificates and trophies

        • REGISTER NOW

          *Please note at this time the competition, containers and collection service is not open to schools based in the Republic of Ireland, don’t worry though as you can still receive the free pupil recycling boxes and nominate your pupils for the battery recycling pioneer prizes. If you are based in the Republic of Ireland and are taking part in the initiative please use this site to find out how to recycle batteries in your area.
