Forklift Battery Recycling Laws and Regulations

There is a federal law referred to as The “Battery Act” that was designed to diminish the negative effects of battery disposal and ensure the safety of the people recycling them. Officially titled “The Mercury-Containing and Rechargeable Battery Management Act of 1996”, this law resulted in specialized recycling techniques that our company has the qualifications and experience to comply with.

It’s crucial that before you begin your battery recycling process you are 100% sure of your local laws and regulations regarding the subject. For more information on your state’s laws, go to the official Battery Council website, and make sure that you do everything on your end safely and legally.

Universal Waste Rules

Every kind of battery is different, but one thing they have in common is the wide array of safety issues. The most common of these being large amounts of acid electrolyte, toxic heavy metals, and cadmium, a carcinogen known to cause cancer in living tissue. If you try to recycle batteries improperly, these things could cause you severe bodily harm.

Spilling, for example, results in extreme corrosive damage to every object around it. If a human comes in contact with the spilled battery, or even anything that the spill affected, they can suffer severe injury and should seek medical help immediately. Not to worry, though — Battery Recyclers of America is here to help, with eco-friendly recycling programs approved regarding all necessary regulations. We can even provide a certificate after the process has been completed to serve as proof that your forklift batteries are being recycled in the best possible way allowed by the EPA regulations in your area.
