  • Bespoke WEEE disposal service

    Batteries are soon to be banned from landfill sites and their disposal is to be regulated by the imminent implementation of the EU Battery Directive. The battery directive and new regulations covering the disposal of used batteries are due to come into force from September 2008.The regulations will affect everyone from manufacturers to end users. All users in the life-cycle chain will have a responsibility to ensure the safe handling and disposal of batteries at the end of their useful life.

    The reasons for this new legislation are due to the fact that when batteries end up at landfill, the resulting effect of the chemicals contained in them have a very negative impact on the environment. Chemical from the batteries leach into the water table and can pollute the surrounding area for many years to come.
