Environmental

RoHS, WEEE & Batteries Directives

European Battery Directive 2013/56/EU remains the prevailing waste management legislation applicable, transposed into UK law as The Waste Batetries and Accumulators (Amendment) Regulations 2015, SI2015 No.1935 and The Batteries and Accumulators (Placing on The Market) (Amendment) Regulations 2015, SI2015 No. 63. 

As lead and cadmium are key active elements within many batteries, and are in many cases irreplaceable, they are specifically excluded from the scope of the RoHS and WEEE Directives.

However, as the core purpose of the RoHS legislation is to remove harmful elements from products, we consider that a spirit of compliance with it is generally good practice. Therefore wherever possible we will ensure that battery components comply.

For information, we would recommend contacting G & P Batteries on +44 (0) 121 568 3200, as a suitable waste management company for the disposal of batteries of all chemistries. Unfortunately we are unable to offer waste collection services ourselves due to waste transfer licensing restrictions.
