ecosteps® is the responsible, sustainable way to recycle batteries

ecosteps is the recycling program run by Johnson Controls in which certified retailers and workshops carry out professional recycling and contribute to environmental protection. And returning your used battery to any of the thousands of collection points across Europe is just the first step.

The used batteries are directly fed into an effective recycling process, operating to the highest environmental standards. Johnson Controls recycling process, ecosteps, 'closes' the recycling 'loop', by turning used batteries into new ones, preserving resources and protecting the environment.


For workshops and wholesalers: a better way to recycle batteries

With our ecosteps initiative, it's easy to demonstrate your commitment to the environment, meet all current legal obligations. Once you've signed up, all you have to do is keep the spent batteries you replace with new products. We'll pick them up when we next make a delivery and recycle them safely and responsibly. And each spent battery you return will help your business save money. That's because we'll credit your account, lowering your costs of new VARTA® batteries.
