Removal & recycling
UPS and battery removal, disposal and recycling requires careful planning and execution. Batteries are the principle consumable and even with a 5 year life will typically require removal and disposal within a 3–4 year period (depending on usage and environmental conditions).
As technology advances, energy savings for today’s UPS systems, with their reduced size and operating modes can make system upgrades between 5–10 years old viable. Our service includes:
- Removing an entire UPS system and full decommissioning to make the system safe
- Potential strip down, especially where the logistics are complicated
- Removal and disposal, while addressing any health and safety and project management issues
- Fully certified disposal to the relevant environmental standards using approved Waste Carriers and WEEE Recycling centres
