Australian Battery Recycling Initiative
ABRI's vision is simple: to achieve battery stewardship in Australia

New information kit on ULAB recycling

Posted on: February 10th, 2014

ABRI promotes ‘responsible recycling’ of used batteries. The collection, transport and recycling of used batteries should be undertaken with due care to avoid any adverse impacts on the environment and to protect the safety of workers and the general public.

A new series of publications has been published on ABRI’s website to promote responsible recycling of used lead acid batteries (ULAB). ABRI members support best practice recycling and will use these publications to educate their staff, contractors and customers.

There are eight information sheets in the kit:

The battery recycling process
Safe storage
Safe handling
Safe transportation
Regulations
Dealing with other battery types (non-lead acid)
Find a recycler
Managing security risks.
