Car Battery Drive

The Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb has negotiated VERY special rates for the recycling of Car Lead Acid Batteries with various metal recyclers and set up accounts with them, which will provide a direct bank deposit to our beneficiaries.

Here’s the process:

  1. No need to drain batteries
  2. Transport in an open vehicle, ute or trailer
  3. At the weigh bridge state that the account is for “Triple Zero Foundation
    1. If delivering to Sims Metal, the account number is 000001 – “Five Zeros and a One”, not “Five Oh and One”
  4. Proceed as directed to unload
  5. Weigh out at cashier station
  6. Ensure cashier notes your name on the receipt i.e. “delivered by”
  7. Take a photo of the receipt with your phone and send it to so it can be credited to your fundraising total

If you have any problems contact MFSC’s Fiona Corfield on +61 417 744 913

Please note:
Our accounts are only valid in Victoria & Tasmania. If you need an account set up in another state please contact Steve.

If you would like to recycle other metals e.g. steel or copper, you can do so via the same process and accounts.

The ATO treats this as a sale between the 000 Foundation (MFSC) and the recycler, who have been provided with our ABN and business details. As such no tax receipt (usable for a tax deduction) for your donation of batteries can be issued – sorry!
