Mercury launch BATTERYSAFE

With the need to recycle batteries becoming more of a pressing issue, Mercury Recycling has launched a scheme that will greatly aid this.

To compliment its LAMPSAFE lamp recycling service, BATTERYSAFE will encompass all types of batteries and provide recycling in compliance with all current legislation and client requirements.

Mercury Recycling managing director Bryan Neill said: “All waste batteries are classified as hazardous waste and disposing of them responsibly requires specialist skills and equipment.

“For example, within the broad categories of single use and rechargeable batteries, there are over a dozen different chemistries and these need to be identified and sorted accurately, as each battery chemistry requires a different recycling process.”

With strict Landfill and Hazardous Waste Regulations existing, requiring organisations to handle and dispose of waste in a responsible manner, Mercury’s scheme will allow many organisations to fulfil their corporate obligations.

Satisfying client requirements under ISO 9000:2000 and BS EN 14001 quality and environmental accreditations, all contracts will be tailored to meet the needs of the user, reflecting their turnover of batteries.
