Leading Lamp and Battery recycler Mercury Recycling has seen a substantial rise in the volume of batteries collected and treated at its Trafford Park facility in Manchester over the last 3 years. Payments made to Facilities Management and Electrical Maintenance companies for Lead based batteries and Uninterruptible Power Systems have also increased significantly more recently.
Over the last 12 months Mercury Recycling have successfully undertaken many time critical contracts such as the whole replacement of UPS systems and also LED re-lamp work where the client required separate containment for the lamps, emergency lighting batteries, ballasts as well as the light fittings. Containers were to be delivered as close prior to works starting as possible to minimise disruption to the site and with careful planning the collections took place immediately after job completion. All Mercury Recycling HGVs have their own lifting equipment and cover the entire mainland United Kingdom.
Sales Manager Graham Mitchell commented “The increase in battery recycling is a major boost for us and the environment. We can offer a man and van service for the smaller premises who just need a 20 litre Batterysafe (inset) for domestic and portable batteries. This goes up to multiple 600litre containers for larger UPS system strip outs using our truck mounted Moffett Forklifts for the handling. There is then the added bonus at the back end of a volume related rebate for the lead acid chemistry batteries.”
