Junk Car Battery Recycling
Cleveland Scrap Cars is back with the latest news from within the auto scrap and salvage car market. CSC is among the many car buyers that offers money for a scrap car or salvage car. As a damaged and wrecked car buyer, we are a proud proponent of eco-conscious salvage car recycling. When you sell an old car to a wrecked car buyer or other car buyers who pay money for a scrap car, it is important that they are a local, environmentally sound company. Our next topic involves some improvements if the recycling of salvage car batteries in the State of WA.
In the January 6, 2016 edition of waste360, an article titled ‘State of Washington Works to Clear Obstacles to Car Battery Recycling’ that was written by Chrissy Kadleck and posted by Anne Piacentino tells us the following: “Vehicle battery recyclers in WA may soon face fewer fees & regulations if those making rules in the WA State Department of Ecology have their way. An assessment of the agency rules about (3) years ago was the impetus for reconsidering the old statute governing state-mandated vehicle battery recycling. Kyle Dorsey, the rules & policy coordinator for the Waste 2 Resources Program with the WA State Dept. of Ecology says the agency is obligated to be a good steward of our rules, and this one hasn’t updated since 1991.
The current registration system for battery recyclers is managed by the state’s Dept. of Revenue, which then sends the info to the Dept. of Ecology. This creates an unnecessary “middle man” and complicates the process. Dorsey says there is a $19 annual fee when a business registers as a battery collector. We can create a one-time registration on Dept. of Ecology webpage, free of charge. It is a good thing to clarify the rules which are difficult to understand and get rid of the fee registration program.
The WA vehicle battery recycling program has been successful with nearly a 100% collection rate. An estimated 1.2M batteries were collected for recycling in 2013. Dorsey says a core charge was installed to encourage people to return the battery back to the place of purchase. This retail charge is refunded to the purchaser when a used battery is exchanged. The Dept. of Ecology issued rule changes and is working on a simple revision process and doesn’t expect much push back against its effort. People seem happy so far; it is less regulation, and it’s free.” The full article from wsra.net is available here.
