Three prominent Perth automotive workshops have signed up this week for Battery Rescue’s used battery collection service utilising the UNISEG Pallet. They include;
- Diesel Motors in Bentley (recently acquired by the Automotive Holdings Group)
- Parkland Mazda in Cannington
- Total Nisaan in Cannington
Battery Collection for Automotive Workshop Benefits
The workshop managers were attracted by the OH&S benefits to their employees and supply chain and their reduced personal contingent liability risks. As lead acid batteries are a controlled hazardous waste and dangerous good, managers have a personal responsibility (and liability) that the batteries are stored, collected and transported in line with current regulations.
Currently regulations stipulate that batteries must be stored undercover, which was often a problem for many automotive workshops already cramped for space. The UNISEG Pallet enables the used batteries to be “compliantly” stored outdoors. This along with the convenience and professionalism of Battery Rescue’s collection service were cited as reasons for the workshop manager signing up to our battery collection service.
The three workshops are also going to participate in Battery Rescue’s Drop’n’Go battery recycling initiative where the public can drop used batteries off at their premises to help increase battery recycling rates and prevent batteries winding up in council rubbish bins.
