If you sell or supply over 32kg of portable batteries per year it is your responsibility to offer free collection or ‘take back’ of waste batteries.
Even household batteries contain elements and chemicals such as lead, lithium, cadmium, mercury and zinc which can prove hazardous when misused.
Hazco offer a range of services to ensure the proper management and disposal of batteries.
Our compliant methods ensure full recovery of metallic components of lead acid batteries to minimise resources lost to landfill. Larger, commercial batteries are disposed of in a safe, more specialised way as they could cause potential harm if disposed of incorrectly.
