Lithium batteries require proper recycling. SWE follows the Federal Regulations of the United States that govern the transportation of primary (non-rechargeable) lithium and rechargeable lithium-ion and lithium polymer batteries. Please refer to Part 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, (49 CFR Sections 100-185) of the US Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) and EPA Guidelines (Title 40 Part 273).
As a service to our customers, SWE offers safe handling of your battery recycling needs in accordance with Federal Regulations for ground shipments. SWE supplies UN-specification crates to your location. Batteries are then packed in our custom designed container and ground shipped to SWE, where arrangements for recycling are handled with strict adherence to regulations.
