LAWS & REGULATION
- New laws in effect in 2011 were passed in 2010 that require businesses and residents in NY to properly recycle used batteries. http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/72065.html
- Many states require battery recycling so check your local laws to stay in compliance. Batteries fall under the universal waste rule and we handle all material to eliminate the generators' cradle-to-grave liability responsibility. This universal rule makes it easy for you to stay in compliance. http://www.epa.gov/osw/hazard/wastetypes/universal/batteries.htm
- The Mercury-Containing Rechargeable Battery Management Act of 1996 also known as “Battery Act” is a law that protects the environment. Through this law, the EPA and state Department of Environmental agencies can reduce the amount of hazardous substances released in to the environment from used batteries. Companies are now producing mercury free button batteries.
