Battery Recycling Policy
R & J Batteries Pty Ltd Battery Recycling Policy/Statement
R & J Batteries Pty Ltd supports and advocates the safe, sustainable, environmentally aware and legal collection and recycling of Used Lead Acid Batteries (ULAB).
We support the principal of product stewardship: that the responsibility for environmental management of ULAB products including their recovery at end of life, is shared by organisations at every stage of the ULAB product life cycle.
All R & J Batteries Pty Ltd stores and warehouses are equipped and able to collect, store and arrange transportation of ULAB irrespective of the size or quantities.
Those R & J Batteries Pty Ltd stores that are affiliated with our sister company, Vic Scrap Batteries Pty Ltd may also be able to pay for ULAB collections subject to current prices, location, quantities and current stock levels. Please check with your local store for more details.
Where possible, R & J Batteries Pty Ltd endeavours to build in ULAB recycling options into all our major supply contracts and agreements.
We support only those recycling organisations that have the capability to recycle on shore in a sustainable and environmentally sensitive manner. We DO NOT advocate or support black market collection and illegal off shore exporting operations.
