New Battery Recycling Service

February 23, 2006 at 2:50 am

Ordinary household batteries don’t contain harmful materials so can be thrown away with daily rubbish but rechargable batteries and single use batteries often contain harmful metals, so cannot be thrown away with daily rubbish.

Some companies will have to dispose of batteries on a regular basis and services like the one just recently set up by Manchester based, Mercury Recycling will be of great use. The new service will help companies dispose batteries properly according to todays hazardous waste regulations – which were changed last year.

Different types of battery need to be identified and sorted correctly and recycled using the right process. Mercury’s ‘Battery Safe’ service will make sure this.
