Used Lead Acid Batteries (ULAB) and Used Non Lead Acid Batteries (UNLAB) are classified as a Hazardous Waste and this makes them a Trackable Waste.

Did you know that as a Trackable Waste there are some important requirements that need to be adhered to.

The following will help with managing these products:

  • Ensure the resource recovery company you use meets current state legislation;
  • Ensure the organisation you use has all relevant insurances and licenses for collection and transportation of this waste;
  • The Australian Dangerous Goods Code requires all dangerous goods, including Waste Batteries be carried in a safe and secure manner so that no harm occurs to the environment ;
  • As a Trackable Waste, legislation requires the correct paperwork is issued by the Collector for every collection. This paperwork is known and identified as a Material Disposal Certificate;
  • Comply to all regulations regarding safe handling and storage to protect the well-being of anybody involved and the environment;

WBC Battery Recyclers carries all relevant Licenses and Insurances including vehicle insurance, public liability insurance and workcover. We and our fleet comply and are registered to meet state legislation regarding the collection and transportation of Waste Batteries and are able to issue Material Disposal Certificates upon every collection.
