When you get batteries serviced by one of our trained AMP technicians, you can feel good knowing that all hazardous waste byproducts, including waste water, junk acid and scrap batteries will be disposed of in the proper, environmentally safe way.
Waste Water All waste water that is generated during a battery wash in our self contained unit is neutralized on-site to a pH level of no less than 2. Then it is transported to one of the AMP Battery and Charger Service Centers. Once there, the neutralized water is pumped into approved drums or totes and labeled appropriately. The waste water is then transported to a federally approved hazardous waste disposal site. Junk Acid All junk acids and used acids that are generated from battery acid adjustments preformed at our AMP Service Centers are handled and disposed of properly. The acid is collected and pumped into approved holding drums and labeled appropriately. The drums are then sealed and the used acid is transported to a federally approved hazardous waste disposal site.
Recycling Spent Batteries All scrap lead acid batteries transported to one of our AMP Service Centers are handled with utmost care. Technicians are trained to meet all applicable DOT regulations. Batteries are placed on a good quality pallet and strapped down with proper banding to prevent shifting during shipping. The batteries are picking up by a federally approved transporter and delivered to the smelting and refining site approved by our OEM supplier.
Lead Acid Battery Recycling Procedure, Material Safety Data Sheets and Recycling Certificates are available to all of our customers. The documentation for handling and disposing all hazardous materials at AMP and MHI are kept on file.
By taking these precautions, we are taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of our employees, customers, and the environment. To set up a service appointment or to learn more about our disposal process, call or stop by your local MHI or AMP facility today.
