Used batteries

Brugnano is commissioned by the COBAT consortium to collect used batteries in Palermo and throughout Sicily. This type of waste, if not collected properly, can cause serious damage to the environment, with consequences for human health: they are, in fact, highly polluting objects, due to the presence of heavy metals, including lead. If not treated properly, spent batteries are a real poison, especially for water.

The Italian legislation regulates the disposal of used batteries, defining the storage and treatment methods, which must be carried out under safe conditions to minimize the risk of harmful substances propagation. The separate collection of these materials is essential to eliminate their presence in landfills and incinerators, with devastating consequences for the environment. Brugnano collects used batteries in full compliance with current regulations, using the safest equipment in this field.

COBAT (National Consortium for Lead Exhausted Batteries and Lead Waste) ensures that the various phases of collection, storage and recovery are carried out in the best possible way. Established in 1988, the Consortium plays a priority role within the Italian green economy, protecting the environment and the citizens’ health; in particular, COBAT is a very important reference point for the batteries recycling in Italy, where greater attention to this type of recovery coincided with the establishment of the institution.

Brugnano undertakes to comply with the regulations in force regarding disposal and recovery, working alongside public bodies, private companies and individual citizens who need to dispose of certain types of special waste, hazardous or not. To ensure that everything is carried out with the utmost safety, the company has the appropriate certifications (OHSAS 18001/07, ISO 9001/15 and ISO 14001/15), the authorization to store according to Ordinance number 573 of 26/11/12 and the authorization for the transport of waste number PA 00247 and subsequent amendments and integrations.
