Battery recycling is run by the producer organisation Recser Oy, a representative of producers placing batteries and accumulators on the market in Finland. Recser Oy takes care of picking up collected batteries and accumulators from collection points for processing and recycling. For pick-up, the batteries and accumulators must be packed into a batch that is appropriate for arranging the transport. For packing, distributors can order transport boxes on this website free of charge.
In addition to distributors’ outlets, discarded portable batteries and accumulators are collected at thousands of complementary collection points, such as several municipalities’ waste stations, offices, educational institutes and health care units. In total, batteries and accumulators are collected for recycling at approximately 13,000 collection points across Finland.
