The Only Company That REALLY Recycles!

Eco Recover, in partnership with the UK’s only lithium-Ion recycling solution. We are 100% eco-focused and make recycling easy.

Our mission is to Recycle 100% of the Lithium-ion Batteries produced in the UK, Honestly and Sustainably starting with those from Electric Bikes, Scooters and Mopeds.

Many collection companies that already exist in the UK, simply collect lithium-ion batteries but do not recycle as they promise too. Instead, they will simply collect your batteries and dispose of them in landfills and dump sites, where they remain high risk and environmentally damaging.

Based in Bristol, Eco Recover is the only company in the UK that recycles 100% of the Lithium-Ion Batteries that we collect.

Why Recycling Lithium-Ion is so important

While switching to electric transport reduces our carbon emissions, it does raise other issues as these batteries can be dangerous if not disposed of, recycled or stored properly. We take pride in being the first UK solution to this.

If not for us, For the Environment

By taking the responsibility of disposing of your lithium-ion batteries, you are helping to reduce the waste produced when making the batteries, as well as reducing the waste in our landfills. You’re also helping make these batteries safer and more secure.

The Dangers of Lithium-Ion

Fire and explosions caused by:

  • Overheating
  • Overcharging
  • Discharging too quickly
  • Water
  • Puncture or damage

Taking Responsibility
For Own Lithium-ion batteries

Eco Recover came to be due to our own experience with the problems that can arise when dealing with these units.

EcoMove Bristol is an Electric transport dealer based in Bristol and is the Mothering company to Eco Recover. Ecomove has been dealing since…. And is an advocate for environmentally friendly alternatives to carbon based vehicles.

Back in November 2020, EcoMove was devastated by a fire in their test track. Whilst firefighters could not determine the definitive cause of the flames, it was suggested to the owners that a lithium-ion battery was likely responsible.

Our search for a solution

Since the fire, EcoMove set out on its mission to find a solution for dealing with the batteries. Whilst the retailers were able to identify how best to store the batteries in the shop, finding a recycling solution was more difficult.

Upon researching, we discovered a local recycling company that specialises in lithium-ion recycling. After reaching out and learning more about the company, we found that they are the first facility (and currently the only one) in the UK to offer on-site recycling for multiple battery types from our state-of-the-art battery shredding and recycling plant.

EcoMove directors, John, Ted and Mark saw an opportunity to join forces with them to create a collection and recycling service for the lithium-ion batteries used in electric scooters, bikes and mopeds across the UK; also known as Eco Recover.

Our Partnership with the UK’s only lithium-Ion recycling solution

Eco Recover has an exclusive deal with the UK’s only lithium-Ion recycling plant to be its sole collector of Electric Transport batteries in the UK. This in turn makes Eco Recover the only genuine recycling collection service available in the country.
