NiMH Battery Recycling with Cleanlites
NiMH (nickel – metal – hydride) batteries power our daily lives. These rechargeable batteries are found in the devices we use every day, including laptops, cell phones, power tools, and cameras. Even though they’re considered non-hazardous in almost every U.S. state (California is the exception), it’s important to know how to properly handle and recycle these batteries, to reduce their impact on our environment. Cleanlites is your partner in safe recycling practices for NiMH batteries, along with providing guidance to your organization on creating comprehensive recycling programs.

The nickel and electrolytes in NiMH batteries are semi-toxic, which is why landfills will only allow these batteries in small quantities. Throwing out a single battery with your regular household trash doesn’t pose much of a threat; however, if you’re disposing of 10 or more batteries, it is more responsible to use a battery recycling service like Cleanlites that can properly handle and safely process your batteries. It may not seem like much, but if all NiMH battery users got on board, think how many batteries we could divert from landfill?
Because battery recycling requirements can vary from state to state, corporations should do their due diligence in understanding their local guidelines for proper battery disposal. Americans dispose of more than 3 billion batteries each year, and knowing how to properly discard each type of battery can be daunting. That’s why Cleanlites has risen to the challenge to provide education on safe disposal along with a comprehensive recycling program to take the guesswork out of environmental responsibility.
