Batteries – easy recycling solutions

Our solutions cover all aspects of battery recycling and can simplify processes for all businesses, small to large.

We can provide battery collections from your premises and manage all your compliance needs.

Batteries or accumulators are any sources of electrical energy generated by direct conversion of chemical energy and consisting of one or more primary battery cells (non-rechargeable) or consisting of one or more secondary battery cells (rechargeable).

Most types of batteries contain toxic heavy metals, including nickel, cadmium, and mercury. All of these metals can be recovered and reused.
