MTS WEEE and Battery Compliance
These directives require that electronic and battery waste is handled and disposed of properly. By recycling WEEE and batteries separately from unsorted municipal waste, you help to keep harmful substances out of the environment. Health risks associated with e-waste can result from direct contact with harmful materials as well as the accumulation of chemicals in soil, water and food.
Recycling of Household or Dual-Use Products and Portable Batteries:
If you have a Household or dual use product that has reached end of life, you should dispose of it at your local municipal facility that accepts WEEE and/or batteries.
Recycling of Professional Products and Industrial Batteries:
If you have an MTS Professional product or lead acid Industrial battery that have reached end of life, you can contact MTS at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for the takeback and responsible recycling of the items, without cost to our customers.
As a producer of industrial batteries under the Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations 2009, MTS produces lead acid industrial batteries placed or intended to be placed on the market during this year and the preceding three years. MTS is obliged to take back free of charge, waste industrial batteries supplied to an end user for treatment and recycling. MTS is required to do this in any calendar year we place new industrial batteries on the market. If any of our customers or in certain cases other end users, require us to take back Industrial batteries, they should contact MTS at email@example.com. MTS will assure completion of the necessary arrangements for the return, proper treatment and recycling of the waste industrial batteries.
