Batteries Disposal Collection Service
Ecolamp collects and recycles all types of batteries, including Household, Alkaline, Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cad), Lithium Ion (Li-Ion), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-Mh) and Lead Acid. If required we can supply you with a container to store your waste batteries waiting for collection. Prices vary so to quote you we need to know quantities and types.
Collection and recycling of waste batteries
NEW SERVICE: We can send you a plastic Ecolamp Battery Box as pictured below for £29. This is a more economical way to collect batteries rather than sending our own driver. We are able to use a specialist courier that is licenced to carry hazardous waste including batteries.
They are made from heavy duty plastic are 400mm x 600mm x 340mm high, load capacity 30kg.
We can accept any type of household-type batteries including alkaline and rechargeable. The battery box can also be used for commercial/industrial batteries as used in power tools, emergency lighting etc, including Ni-Cad, Ni-Mh etc..
The above battery box cannot be used for Lithium, lithium Ion (Li-Ion) or Lithium Polymer (Li-Po) batteries as used in mobiles phones, laptops etc as these pose a significant and very real fire risk and require special packaging. We have a similar battery box specifically for Lithium type batteries at £169 rather than £129. This battery box contains vermiculite which is a fire retardant material for you to enclose the Lithium batteries in.
The battery boxes must not be used for batteries containing wet liquid, wet electrolyte or acid such as car batteries and lead-acid batteries as used in UPS Systems
We can still recycle these batteries for you but need to quote separately, as these cannot be transported by courier, we will attend your site in our own vans to collect the batteries
When the battery box is full we will collect it, replace it with an empty one and recycle the batteries for £99.
There is no time limit on how long it takes you to fill the battery box, simply email us when it is full and we will organise a collection. We have a special arrangement with the dangerous goods dept of TNT who collect hazardous waste on our behalf and deliver it to our depot for reycling, which allows us to quote the same low price regardless of your location.
We will then provide you asigned Hazardous Waste Transfer Note, which is a legal document and your proof to the authorities and auditors that you have recycled the batteries.
To order this service please send Purchase Order for £29 or confirm by email and we will invoice you after delivery. The same applies when the box is full, you can either send a purchase order for £99 or email us and we will invoice you shortly after collection.
Alternatively, we also offer a one-off battery collection service which is an all-inclusive service for £109. This service is provided based on a quick turnaround basis, we will send you a battery box which you will need to fill within 2 days of receiving and then we will collect without leaving you with a replacement box. Please send either a Purchase Order for £109, or email us and then we will invoice you after we have collected your box and provide you with a Hazardous Waste Transfer Note.
