School Battery Program

The City of Armadale offers schools the opportunity to participate in a battery collection program for the correct disposal and recycling of batteries.

Batteries contain hazardous materials that can be harmful to the environment if disposed in landfill or cause fires in trucks and/or recycling facilities if they are placed in the recycling bin. Collecting batteries separately for recycling means old batteries can be made into new batteries keeping them out of landfill as well as saving valuable resources.

For your school to participate, please complete the registration form and return to:

Waste Services - 

City of Armadale
Locked Bag 2 ARMADALE WA 6992

Your school will receive:

  • Two 4 litre pails that are “dangerous goods” (DG) approved;
  • Education posters;
  • Collection and storage guidelines; and 
  • An email containing standard wording and images to promote battery recycling

For any further assistance or enquiries the City’s Waste Education Officer can be reached on (08) 9394 5000 or email
