EU battery disposal directive:
Recycle your old lead acid batteries to avoid putting harmful toxins into the environment. Part of the EU's batteries directive, is meant to deal with the thousands of tonnes of harmful metals that pollute the environment when used batteries are burned or put into landfill. Whilst the lead acid batteries used in industry and vehicles are routinely and efficiently recycled most batteries (20,000 tonnes a year) go to landfill once they are no longer needed. If batteries are incinerated, metals can be spread through the air as fine particles and vapours. According to the Environment Agency, which will be among the organisations to enforce the new rules, the directive will "affect any business that uses, produces, supplies, or disposes of batteries.
We will dipose of your old batteries in compliance with the Environment Agency guide lines.
We can collect any amount large or small and we can also provide you with a waste transfer note.
