Material Not Accepted
We do not accept equipment that contain liquids, gasses, or radioactive material or items that may be too large for us to accommodate in the SLS facilities. We handle most types of batteries, and can accept “loose” batteries if they have been packaged properly for transport.
An Industry Note
Batteries, toners, inks, mercury bulbs, and CRT monitors are the common items that require special handling when recycling assets. Responsible recyclers will manually remove these hazardous items from assets prior to recycling. They will be packaged and sent to downstream vendors for final processing.
An Important Tip
It is important to audit a recycler to ensure they are not excessively allowing these hazards to accumulate in their processing center. There have been many documented cases where leaded glass from CRT monitors have been stockpiled and abandoned by less than reputable recyclers.
It is equally important to ensure they are sending hazardous materials to reputable downstream vendors who are audited on a regular basis.
