Battery Backup Disposal - The Correct Way
The importance of disposing of UPS unit batteries correctly leads to a number of reasons from a regulation point of view which is in place for safety and environmental reasons.
Waste Battery Regulations: In the UK, the disposal of batteries is primarily governed by the Waste Battery Regulations. These regulations aim to minimize the environmental impact of batteries by promoting recycling and proper disposal practices.
Producer Responsibility Obligations: Battery manufacturers and producers have specific responsibilities under these regulations. They are often required to take back used batteries and ensure their proper recycling and disposal. This may include manufacturers/suppliers of UPS units that use batteries.
Compliance is essential, otherwise, consequences such as penalties, fines and legal consequences will be taken against you. That is why we are happy to help you, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your batteries have been disposed of correctly.
