Not a lot, unless youv'e got kilo's of them!!

If you use LBS get them to send you a recycling tub out, it comes with an APC overnight delivery bag. When it's full you ring the number on the tub and they come and collect, then set against your account.

Can't remember how much a full tub was worth, but all helps and more than the old pikeys through the door will give you!!

I have nearly 5 kilos of 3v batteries but cannot find anyone who wants them.

batteries being SILVER OXIDE..have literally silver in them..which is extracted from used batteries and recycled..so if you have lots of them they are worth a lot and vice versa

They don't sell for as much as they used to, but I think we got something like £15 a kilo for the last lot (£30 a kilo in 2012).


It is only the silver watch batteries that they want though, everything else get taken to the tip and put in the battery recycling bin.
