ECOPILAS offers waste management through municipal facilities: clean points, waste collection points, Ecoparks, Green points… commercial and industrial establishments, with coverage throughout the territory and works in all the Autonomous Communities with authorised managers. We make available to all citizens a selective waste battery collection system .
►We provide for citizens a network with more than 38.000 points where they can take to recycle their used batteries and that can be found through our web in this link: collection points.
►As SCRAP we take responsibility for our member producers and distributors. That is why we offer them a battery management platform to send direct collection requests.
First step: Awareness of the final consumer. Second step: Installation of containers. Third step: Collection, intermediate storage and transport of waste batteries to the plant. Last step: Treatment and recycling.
Our logistic model takes into account both the professional and domestic origin of the waste and establishes the different paths to follow in each case:
Direct collection: Collection of material on demand from a minimum amount of waste or by defined frequency routes.
The following materials shall be obtained from grinding or milling:
Plastics that will later be recycled and plastic granza will be obtained.
Ferrous metals of the metallic casings intended for the iron and steel industry to obtain new steel.
Intermediate fractions that will be treated in a second phase
RETURN TO THE PRODUCTION PROCESS
For each ton of alkaline batteries collected, more than 300 kilograms of zinc and 250 kilograms of iron and nickel can be recovered, which are used to manufacture all kinds of objects again: from forks and table spoons, to car license plates, new batteries and photovoltaic panels.
DID YOU KNOW…
PRODUCERS ARE OBLIGED TO COLLECT AND RECYCLE A NUMBER OF BATTERIES IN PROPORTION TO THE NUMBER THEY PUT ON THE MARKET EACH YEAR. IN THE CASE OF PORTABLE BATTERIES AND ACCUMULATORS (THE MOST COMMON IN HOUSEHOLDS), THE LEGISLATION SETS A MINIMUM COLLECTION TARGET OF 45% BY WEIGHT FROM 2016. THIS TARGET WILL BE INCREASED TO 50% BY 2021.
