Go search for them, store them in a Bebat collection box from now on and make it a habit to regularly bring your used batteries to a collection point.

Why do we have to recycle batteries?

Did you know that we can make a spectacle frame out of the raw materials of 13 batteries? And a watering can out of 120? Bebat gives a new life to every battery by extracting all metals and other raw materials and re-using them in other applications.

20 years

For 20 years, Bebat has been giving new life to used batteries by collecting, sorting and recycling them. We are an environmental organisation with world-class collection results and we are continuously looking to optimise the recycling process with regard to both quantity and quality.

At Bebat, we collect, sort and recycle batteries...

For each battery family, this happens according to a specific process, in which all metals and other components are extracted and can be re-used as raw materials.

... and we are really good at it!

Belgium performs better than the European goal of 45% in 2016. Belgium is obviously the frontrunner in Europe, as well as the rest of the world.
