UPS Battery Recycling: Laws and Regulations You Should Know

In 1996, the “Battery Act” was set out to regulate the safety and processes that were being used to recycle battery waste. By recycling your spent UPS batteries, you’re abiding by this law and contributing to further use of the materials.
Are you in need of professional battery recycling services? If so, a good first step would be to see what your state laws are in regards to battery recycling. Each state has its own laws, so be sure to check out BatteryCouncil.org, which has a breakdown of battery recycling laws by state
Battery Recyclers of America provides battery recycling solutions for your UPS batteries. We ensure that all of our processes are certified, and abide with the laws covered above. Contact us today for next day pickup and join the contribution of recycling batteries so that the materials can be put to good use, instead of waste.

Recycling UPS Batteries using Sustainable Practices

The Universal Waste Regulation set out by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), was put in place to create safe recycling and disposal processes of batteries. Prior to this regulation, the harsh and toxic materials that comprise batteries contributed to overflowing landfills and further exacerbated detrimental effects on the environment.
While this regulation has made great strides in remedying the effects of our waste, many American plants continue to outsource their waste to countries that have lax environmental laws to avoid hefty EPA compliance fees.
We at Battery Recyclers of America are passionate about environmental sustainability and we prioritize working with partners who share the same values. Our organization is in good-standing with the EPA due to our sustainable practices and programs when recycling UPS batteries.
We often recycle batteries at no cost to our clients. In fact, our clients often receive cash from us, depending on the type of batteries they recycle.
Working with a proven battery recycling company is paramount to ensuring that you’re following these rules. Battery Recyclers of America guarantees that you will be using the best recycling programs to date, and utilizing EPA-approved facilities.

Properly Identifying UPS Batteries

An UPS battery is used as an emergency backup power supply when the main power fails. These power sources are used to protect hardwares such as computers, data centers and other electrical equipment. UPS batteries play an important role in these situations, since power loss of the electrical equipment they are used for can cause serious injury, or even fatality.
The size of these battery backups vary from a single unit used to protect a computer, to large units built to power an entire data center. They consist of lead plates, electrolyte and plastic casing.

How Long Do UPS Batteries Last?

UPS batteries fall into three types of categories: online, offline, and line-interactive.
Online uninterruptible power supplies are always connected to an inverter, eliminating power transfer switches. If the power fails, the battery takes over and keeps power steady for as long as it can. These batteries are important to provide a firewall between utility power and electronic equipment.
Offline UPS batteries provide surge protection and emergency battery backup. However, these batteries don’t offer any extra benefits outside of these two features. Offline UPS batteries are designed to power equipment without any dips to the device.
Line-interactive UPS batteries offer similar features to the offline batteries, but also include the ability to increase or decrease the amount of powered coils of wire. This causes an effect to the magnetic field, and changes the output of the transformer being used.
Most UPS batteries last for about three to five years. When these batteries can no longer provide any benefit, it is important to recycle them. The materials used can be extremely valuable, so make sure to call professional battery waste services that you can trust. Battery Recyclers of America can come and pick up your UPS batteries, ensuring that the materials can be of further use.
