STORAGE, SAFETY AND PACKAGING TIPS:

  1. 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.
  2. 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 following:
    1. 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.
    2. 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 or
      transport.
    3. Package batteries so that terminals will not short in transport.
    4. Place plastic non-conductive electrical tape over the terminals.
  3. 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 containers:
    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
