Headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, Storage Battery Systems can help you comply with all pertinent government requirements for battery disposal, recycling and storage, as well as assistance with yearly chemical reporting requirements.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Standards for the Reclamation and Disposal of Lead-Acid Batteries
Classified as Hazardous Material by the US Environmental Protection Agency, lead-acid batteries require proper disposal. Fortunately, the typical flooded battery is 99% recyclable.
Although VRLA and Ni-Cad cells are not as reusable, they can be substantially reclaimed with the remainder safely disposed. SBS will decommission, palletize and transport your spent battery plant to our approved reclamation facility per CFR Title 49. All disposals will be in accordance with federal, state and local regulations.
SBS then provides a "Certificate of Recycling" indemnifying your company from any and all liabilities associated with the hazardous material.
