The waste producer remains responsible for the description of the waste and its disposal. It is therefore extremely important that the types of batteries for collection are adequately and accurately described.

GMP Baird is committed to helping businesses meet their responsibilities towards battery waste. The company has specialist knowledge of the legal issues surrounding the disposal of batteries and a strong social and environmental policy that ensures, wherever possible, that all waste is recycled not only compliantly but also in the most cost effective manner.

The hazardous nature of waste batteries means that they are governed by many different kinds of legislation to ensure safe storage,

handling, transportation and recycling. If you generate waste batteries then you must be familiar with the relevant legislation and must use compliant collection and recycling companies to dispose of your waste.

As a producer of waste batteries you have a duty of care to ensure that such waste is correctly stored on your premises and that it is being transported compliantly to its final destination for disposal or recycling. You must be able to prove that you have considered the waste hierarchy and checked the credentials of your waste collection and disposal company for full compliance with all current legislation. GMP Baird meets all the required criteria, giving you peace of mind that by using our company you are meeting the necessary legal requirements.
