I had to replace the brick in one of my Celicas this weekend and I am left with a lump of best Prince of Darkness of which to be rid.

 

What are the official ways to do this?

Even if they give you next to nothing, at least it will be recycled properly.

If no near scrapyard then most places that sell batteries will take the old one.

Thanks, that looks good.

 

I looked on that page and saw that they offer a standard battery fitment service and a deluxe battery fitment service and I wondered what might be the difference. I decided that the deluxe service must be the one where they fit it the right way round.

 

I'll take it there if I still have it in the morning. I left it on the berm with a $1000 price tag so that might work too.

Love how Supercheap say "yes its free to recycle my battery at Supercheap Auto" when the scrapyards pay you for it. Wonder what Supercheap does with them :)

In Christchurch you can leave them at the council transfer station. Not sure about other areas.

Metal man (or Scrap Man as they are called now in some areas) pay around $7 for old car batteries. I emptied out my dad's man shed after he died and I made some decent beer money out of old car batteries, copper piping/pieces and other assorted scrap metals.

Ha bloody ha!

Thanks to @jeffnz, they'll sell the battery I need for $251! It's amazing what connections one makes here on GZ, and here's one that's saved me a good amount...

What do supercheap do to earn the money they make on these batteries. Simple really, they are open over the whole of this long weekend. The scrappies are not.
