Supplies

Batteriretur offer collectors various supplies to make sorting and packaging of disused batteries easier.

Storage box for discarded lead-acid batteries

§ 11-5. Responsible storage, etc. of hazardous waste

Hazardous waste must be handled properly. Anyone who stores, transports or handles hazardous waste shall take necessary measures to avoid any risk of contamination or injury to humans or animals.

Hazardous waste cannot be mixed with other types of waste. Different types of hazardous waste cannot be interchanged or mixed, as this could lead to contamination or create problems for further handling of the waste.

Transport box for damaged lead-acid batteries

For the damaged batteries that cannot be made leak-free, pallets should NOT be used, but an approved container. Inner dimensions of the box: 110 x 41 x 71 cm (l x h x d).

Plugs

These are replacement plugs for acid-filled batteries. They come in three different sizes, small, medium and large.

Pallet cap

The pallet cap is shrunk around the pre-stacked pallets, securing them during transport. Pallet caps are supplied in rolls, and one roll is enough for 50 pallets.

Shims

Cardboard discs are used as soft shims between the battery layers, to avoid short circuits when stacking batteries onto the pallets.

Stickers, acid-free

The stickers should be put on damaged, acid-free lead batteries before being packed and shipped to Batteriretur to confirm that there is no danger of acid leakage.

Shock Absorbing Material, Vermiculite

Vermiculite is a mineral that is shock absorbing, has good insulation capacity, conducts heat poorly and is liquid absorbent. Vermiculite comes in 100-liter sacks.

 

Collection Box

Collection box for disused household batteries. The box is UN approved for packing-group II, up to a maximum of 5kg. It can be placed at retailers who want it, or at similar institutions.

Tape the poles of the batteries before putting them into the box. Full boxes are delivered to the Post office and return shipping is covered by Batteriretur.

 

 

Barrels

UN approved barrels with belted lids for small batteries can be purchased from Batteriretur by contacting us. The barrels hold 220 and 120 liters.

UN approved cardboard box

UN approved cardboard box for packaging of used lithium / lithium-ion batteries. Outer dimensions of the box are (l x d x h) 58 x 37 x 44 cm. The box can handle a maximum of 70 kg.

Sorting Posters

The sorting posters can be hung over the different barrels to make the sorting job easier. The posters illustrate the different battery types, what they can be labeled with and what UN number, EAL code and waste material number they have. The sorting posters are available free of charge by contacting Batteriretur.
