Economic evaluation of B-cycle collection and sorting processes

Economic evaluation of B-cycle collection and sorting processes

The Battery Stewardship Council is reviewing B-cycle economics and requested information from ABRI.

ABRI’s response highlighted:

  • Timely to review the economics of the scheme and look to continuous improvement as the scheme matures from its start-up phase.
  • Congratulations to BSC on the successful start to the scheme and appreciates the substantial work put in by the BSC team in the start up phase. 
  • Observations about about the economics of collection and sorting processes: 
    • Administrative and audit process
    • Lack of flexibility to support a variety of collection models
    • Transport costs are rising 
    • The rebates only partially cover operating costs and therefore do not contribute towards capital investment
    • The definition of metro is broad and does not reflect the operating practices and realities of the industry
