Australian Battery Recycling Initiative
ABRI's vision is simple: effective stewardship of all end of life batteries


The Australian Battery Recycling Initiative (ABRI) has been formed by a group of battery manufacturers, recyclers, retailers, government bodies and environment groups to promote the collection, recycling and safe disposal of all batteries.

This has a number of important environmental benefits:

  • recovery of non-renewable resources for other beneficial uses
  • reduction in the environmental impacts of mining and manufacturing virgin materials
  • reduction in the environmental impacts of landfill
  • less contamination of recycling programs for organic materials.

ABRI supports the principle of product stewardship: that responsibility for environmental management of products, including their recovery at end of life, is shared by organisations at every stage of the product life cycle.
