Why does Bebat collect batteries?
Together with you, Bebat wants to give all used batteries a new life. By collecting batteries smartly and helping schools and firms collect, but there is also so much more. Discover it here!
How many batteries are in your house?
On average, a family has 131 batteries in their house, of which 30 are empty. They can mostly be find in the storage room, the garage, the living room or the office. 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.
For 25 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.
We work closely together with our partners
As manufacturer or importer of batteries, it is not simple to comply with the legal take-back obligation for used batteries and battery packs. When you affiliate with Bebat, we make sure that you comply with this take-back obligation.
