Apple Recycling Program

Terms and Conditions
Apple Battery Recycling


When shipping batteries, it is important to minimise the chance of an item turning on during shipping.

Batteries must be shipped according to instructions from Australia Post.

Where more than one battery is being shipped, terminals must be taped to ensure they do no not come into contact with other terminals.

Cylindrical batteries
Use tape to strap these batteries along side each other, like logs in a raft.

Laptop Batteries
Tape should be placed over terminals in "flat laptop battery" types.
