How We Recycle NiMH Batteries
At GlobalTech Environmental, in accordance with our 100 percent landfill-free policy and our commitment to reclaim all usable materials from the batteries we recycle, we refine all of the NiMH battery we obtain. While the actual process differs slightly depending on the particular refinery process, it boils down to the recovery of nickel from the NiMH batteries.
How To Store NiMH Battery Waste
To properly store the NiMH battery scrap, in most cases, a Universal Waste label should be affixed to the outside of the package.
How To Ship NiMH Batteries
When preparing your NiMH bulk battery scrap for shipping keep the following things in mind:
- NiMH Batteries; Non Hazardous: Nickel metal batteries are not considered to be a hazardous material if shipped in any manner(e.g. Train, Truck, OTR), except via a vessel (boat).
- NiMH Batteries; Hazardous (UN 3496): Nickel metal batteries are considered to be a hazardous material if shipped via a vessel (boat). Overseas shipments of NiMH batteries are considered Hazardous and must be approved by the countries origin of NiMH battery waste and the receiving country of said NiMH battery waste.
- Taping and/or Preventing the Touching of Terminals: There is no need to tape the NiMH battery terminals as long as they are 9v and under. Alternate methods can be used besides tape to prevent the battery terminals from touching.
- Small Boxes: Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries for recycling can be put into smaller boxes as long as the box is manageable, is sufficiently strong enough, and does not exceed 65 lbs.
- Large Gaylord Boxes: These boxes can be used as an alternate option for shipping Recycled NiMH batteries to us, but please limit the weight to under 4000 lbs.
- Strap, and/or wrap gaylord boxes that are bowing outward because of the outward pressure of the weight of these batteries. Charges may be applied for spilt batteries and/or damaged boxes and pallets.
- Stronger gaylord boxes, 5-ply or greater, should be used to withstand the weight and pressures of all batteries sent to GlobalTech for Recycling.
- Strong Pallets: Put heavier gaylord boxes or containers on pallets strong enough to handle the carried load. Charges may be applied for spilt batteries and/or damaged boxes and pallets.
