Used Battery Collection Service

Battery Rescue provides a regulation compliant, safe and convenient, used battery collection service to businesses and organisations (Used Battery Generators – UBGs) that accumulate used lead acid batteries. Our service revolves around the use of the purpose built, patented Battery Transport & Storage (BTS) Container, which provides a safer method for storing and transporting lead acid batteries, while reducing the environmental impact. Our service is currently available in Metro Perth & Regional WA.

We believe the  use of wood pallets should be eliminated due to their inherit safety risks and impact on the environment. A full summary of the benefits of Battery Rescue’s battery collection service can be found here.

Reduce Your Company & Personal Risks

The reality is that the majority of Used Battery Generators are not “Regulation Compliant” with respect to the correct storage, handling and transportation of used lead acid batteries (ULABs). As a Controlled Hazardous Waste and Dangerous Goods the storage, handling & transportation of ULAB’s is controlled by a raft of different regulations, which carry significant penalties for non-compliance.

“Chain Of Responsibility” provisions in some of the regulations means that as consignors, Used Battery Generators, have a responsibilities to ensure that their batteries are correctly handled & transported by their suppliers. Failure to discharge their responsibilities correctly can result in Companies and their Executives being deemed liable, if they are unable to demonstrate that they have taken all reasonable steps to prevent a breach.

Battery Rescue’s collection service is designed to eliminate these risks to Companies & its Executives by delivering regulation compliant storage and transportation of used lead acid batteries. For a full summary of the benefits Battery Rescue’s Battery Collection Service, read here.
