USED LEAD ACID BATTERY RECYCLING Battery Rescue’s UNISEG Pallet has been designed for the storage, collection and direct transportation of used lead acid batteries (ULABs). The chemical- and acid-proof pallet incorporates a liquid-retaining bund area to capture up to 25 L of acid leaks and is weather resistant when closed, making it suitable for outdoor use. The front-load configuration enables staff to easily and safely stack batteries onto the pallet, while the rear, left-hand and right-hand panels help keep the batteries in place. When the pallet is full of batteries it can be closed and secured by the 10 over-centre latches, enabling it to safely store up to 1.2 t (approximately 70 car batteries). The pallet comes with all the necessary dangerous goods signage for transporting the ULABs, so once closed it is ready for immediate transportation. Battery Rescue provides the pallet for free as part of its battery collection service. This includes delivery and set-up of the pallet, collection when full, replacement with an exchange pallet, and handling and transport to a registered ULAB processing plant. Payment to customers at applicable London Metals Exchange rates for their reclaimed and recycled lead is made via EFT within seven days of pallet delivery to an approved ULAB processing plant. The used lead battery collection service completely eliminates manual handling from the point of original collection to the end destination. The pallet provides convenience, occupational health and safety improvements and improved environmental outcomes. Battery Rescue Australia Pty Ltd www.batteryrescue.com.au
