The recycling of UPS batteries should be an important part of any business within the industry. Secure Powers fully endorses with the recycling of hazardous waste.
Batteries used in uninterruptible power supplies (such as VRLA type batteries) contain toxic chemicals and if mishandled or disposed of incorrectly, can be dangerous and environmentally damaging. As such, in the UK battery recycling must be carried out in line with Hazardous Waste Regulations.
Adhering to the current legislation put in place by the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling directive is vital. Here at Secure Power, we manage the safe and environmentally friendly disposal of batteries following these regulations.
As a registered waste carrier, we can assure you that not only do we fully comply with regulations, but we are also a company with a conscience. We believe it is our responsibility to be as eco-friendly as possible by disposing of batteries safely and correctly is a step in the right direction to protect the environment from any hazardous risks.
Secure Power ensures that we assist all of our customers with the safe and legally compliant transportation and recycling of any waste batteries. We offer a comprehensive battery collection and disposal service to help you comply with UK legislation, as well as providing copies of Waste Consignment Notes for customer records if requested. Specialist logistics teams are available to safely package scrap batteries on your premises for safe transport back to one of our recycling partners.
