Battery recycling is an important part of the Universale Waste Rule. We use batteries on a daily basis, and knowing the proper way to recycle them when you replace them is important for businesses.
EverLights offers battery recycling services to companies and organizations of all sizes, and will help you stay in compliance with all federal and state regulations. Our experience in the battery recycling inudstry has provided us with the expertise necessary to make sure your materials are handled properly.
When recycling batteries, it is important to store and handle them properly. Before recycling, batteries should be separated by type (or chemistry) and be clearly labeled, "Universal Waste, Batters,"Waste Batteries" or "Used Batteries." Batteries should be stored in 5 gallon plastic pails or 55 gallon lined drums that EverLights can deliver to your location. EverLights can provide storage containers and labels for a regular pickup service, or you can participate in our EverMail recycling program. We encourage the reuse of packagin materials, but your containers must have tight-fitting lids and be properly labeled.
EverLights is committed to keeping our customers informed and safe when recycling your batteries. Improper handling and recycling of batteries can lead to undesirable consequences. With EverLights, you will never have to worry about that.
Batteries are subject to the Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR 49 CFP 171-180) because of the chemicals and other materials contained within and their electrical potential. Because of this hazard, batteries should be packaged for transport (and storage) in a manner that prevents short circuiting and damage to the terminals. The Department of Transportation (DOT) increased packaging requirements in January 2009 under 49 CFR 172 Special Provision 130 to include “taping” battery terminals. DOT suggests using electrical or other non-conductive tape to cover the terminals or packing each battery in its own fully enclosed bag. Common household batteries, such as Alkaline and Zinc Carbon, are exempt from this provision because of the low risk of dangerous heat buildup. EverLights is committed to keeping our customers informed and safe when recycling their used batteries.
