Recycling company Recytech is aiming to help businesses with a nationwide service to collect dry cell batteries.
The service, called BatteryBack, will recycle large volumes of rechargeable and non-rechargeable dry cell batteries.
Recytech is collecting D-cell, C-cell, AA, AAA, 9-volt, and button cells. Rechargeable battery packs from mobile phones, cameras, laptop computers, power tools, iPods, PDAs and pagers will also be collected.
Recytech’s CEO Kevin Ruscoe says businesses lack the processes to collect and recycle batteries, leaving them to commercial waste disposal systems.
“We believe BatteryBack will offer a ‘quick win’ to businesses such as hotel chains, property managers and branded service centres which have to dispose of large quantities of old batteries and want to do so in an environmentally responsible but easy to manage way.”
