Battery Recycling

 

   As part of our commitment to reduce the environmental impact of our own operations and those of our customers we encourage the removal of the batteries from all GPS units once the unit is of no furtherpractical  use to the customer.

 

All Airbox GPS systems can be dismantled by unscrewing the rear of each unit and removing the back panel. The internal batteries can then be carefully removed and the remaining electronic components disposed of safely at a local waste recycling centre.

 

The Li-Ion batteries can then be disposed of using one of the following methods:

 

Method 1: Log on and register at www.recyclenow.co.uk to order a container to collect batteries, and log in again to request a collection when it is full.

 

Method 2: Find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.co.uk.

   

Why Airbox takes recycling of batteries seriously?

 

Some household batteries contain chemicals like lead, mercury or cadmium. If batteries are disposed of in your normal waste bin, they are likely to end up in landfill. When the batteries are put into landfill they start to break down, and can leak some of these chemicals into the ground. This can cause soil and water pollution, which may lead to health risks.

 

Recycling avoids this and can also recover some of the raw materials used for making batteries. These can be used to make other products. The result of recycling means we can save some of the planet`s resources by reducing the need to mine new materials.

 

WEEE Recycling

 

Customers wishing to dispose of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) when it reaches the end of its life can do so by contacting customer service, who will arrange for it to be sent to an authorised treatment facility that will treat and dispose of it in an environmentally sound way.
