DRY CELL BATTERY RECYCLE COMPANY LINKS
More companies coming very soon.
STORAGE, SAFETY AND PACKAGING TIPS:
- First, if you have only a couple of battery packs
to recycle you can always drop those off at your nearest Best Buy, Lowes Home Improvement Warehouse, or company
Radio Shack to name only a few. They keep recycle boxes in
house for just this purpose. Be considerate of your store
representative. If the pack is made of C, D, or larger cells, it
helps greatly to take a pair of tin snipers and separate the pack into
2 cell sticks by cutting the weld tabs with a pair of tin snips.
- Safety Requirements: Ni-Cd
batteries discharge current quickly by design. Even though
the battery is used up, it still may contain a significant residual
charge, and may contain a full charge when discarded. To
guard against possible fire it is imperative that you take
precautions to prevent the batteries from short-circuiting.
You should do at least one of the
- Discharge Cells: This should be
done only by a knowledgeable engineer or technician.
Consult your battery supplier for instructions on how to
discharge cells completely and properly.
- Place in Plastic Bag: Batteries
may be placed separately in plastic bags so the terminals will
not come in contact with other batteries or metal during storage
- Package batteries so that terminals
will not short in transport.
- Place plastic non-conductive electrical
tape over the terminals.
- Containers: Batteries should be
stored inside in a cool, dry place away from flammable material.
The following three storage containers will also serve as shipping
- Drums: Batteries may be packaged
in vented 55 gallon drums. These drums can be either
plastic or steel. Drums should be full. If the drum
is not full, the empty space should be filled with vermiculite, a
fire-retardant packing material. Drums should be secured to
pallets to allow handling by forklift.
- Boxes: Depending on the recycle
company; batteries may be packaged in DOT approved cardboard
boxes or equivalent (double walled boxes are recommended).
These should be available from any local carton supplier.
Choose a box size that will hold the batteries without leaving
any empty space so as to reduce the possibility of the contents
shifting during transport. Only if absolutely necessary,
fill in any empty space with vermiculite. Do not use paper
or flammable material. The carton should be securely sealed
shut with packing tape.
- Each box should weigh no more than 50
pounds. A box with dimensions of 12" x 12" x 8" will hold
approximately 50 pounds of batteries. Shipments of boxes
weighing 150 pounds or more should be secured to pallets to allow
handling by forklift.
