Gov investigating EV battery recycling


The Government is making plans to enable the safe recycling of electric vehicle batteries in future.

Currently, they are not accepted at local recycling facilities because there is no way to dispose of them safely on the island.

Instead, islanders and businesses are advised to contact the local dealer that sold them the vehicle.

However, Infrastructure Minister Deputy Kevin Lewis confirmed this week in response to a question from Deputy Kirsten Morel that his department is “investigating options available for the safe recycling of electric vehicle batteries as it is inevitable that we will see some that arrive on our sites in the future due to the increased popularity of these vehicles.”

Express has contacted the Government for further details of the options being examined and is awaiting a reply.
