End-of-life vehicles


Waste Batteries

All battery producers in the UK are required to be registered with the Government as part of an EU-wide initiative to increase battery collection/recycling and completely prohibit the landfill/incineration of automotive, industrial and portable batteries. 

Start-up Battteries (Automotive batteries)
If you simply wish to replace the start-up battery in your vehicle, it can be taken to your nearest Mercedes-Benz Retailer where a new one can be installed and we will take care of the old one. Alternatively, your old battery can be taken to one of the following facilities for recycling:

  • Civic Amenity and Recycling Centres
  • Local Authority Battery Collection Schemes
  • Licensed End of Life Vehicle Authorised Treatment Facilities
  • Licensed Metal Recycling Sites

Portable batteries

Electric powered or “hybrid” vehicle batteries (Industrial Batteries)
