FREE BATTERY AND THEIR WASTE COLLECTION
Car batteries are ones of the most common hazardous waste types that must be properly collected and recycled. In accordance with the EU requirements for lead batteries, they must be collected and processed in order to re-use all waste materials such as lead, plastic, sulfuric acid, antimony and other chemicals. Lead-acid batteries are amongst the most hazardous, but they are also the most processed. According to the Battery Council International 97 percent of batteries get recycled and returned to the automotive industry. This not only reduces the pollution, but also helps to save natural resources.
AD Baltic and partners, in accordance with the procedure established by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and the Waste Management Law, accepts batteries and their waste free of charge.
OTHER WASTE COLLECTION
AD Baltic is a member of Lithuanian Manufacturers and Importers Association.
The Association has created an unprecedented free product and packaging waste collection system, which is based on correct and effective handling and recycling of product (oil, electronic, lubricant, fuel, air filter, shock absorber, battery etc.) and packaging waste.
Owing to this system, members of the Association (car garages and product distributors, whose activity generates waste) helped to significantly decrease hazardous and non-hazardous waste pollution and encourage proper disposal of product and packaging waste.
More than 290 AD Baltic clients, who have signed tripartite agreement for waste collection, agreed that waste-related expenses have decreased significantly. It happened due to close cooperation between the Waste Management Centre (UAB Atliekų tvarkymo centras), Manufacturers and Importers Association (Gamintojų ir importuotojų asociacija) and UAB AD Baltic, trying to accomplish the principle of responsibility.
ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT WASTE MANAGEMENT
Electrical and electronic equipment waste (WEEE) is extremely dangerous; the improper handling of WEEE poses a risk to the environment and human health. Released into the environment, these substances penetrate soil and contaminate ground water, therefore it is very important that WEEE is separated from the general waste and is processed properly.
WEEE marking (see below) on products indicates that such products must be collected separately without being mixed with household waste.
WEEE can be disposed of in special WEEE collection points free of charge.
Every consumer buying a new EEE product has a right to dispose of it by bringing it to the point of purchase. Our company cooperates with hazardous-waste-management companies and regularly transfers them the collected hazardous waste. We can assure you that the waste we receive will be utilized safely and properly.
We invite all businesses and individuals not to be indifferent and sort waste, dispose of it properly in order not to pollute the environment and preserve the nature!
