Why Do Lithium Batteries Need to be Disposed of?

If lithium batteries are discarded incorrectly, they release toxic chemicals into the environment, contaminating soil and water sources. Elements such as lithium, cobalt, and nickel harm human health and wildlife when they leak into the environment and water supplies.

Another worry is a “thermal runaway,” where damaged batteries overheat and catch fire. If a battery is crushed or punctured through regular trash systems, it is more likely to cause damage and become a fire hazard.

Lithium Battery Disposal Regulations

Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the U.S. government established several regulations for the safe disposal and recycling of lithium batteries.

Most lithium-ion batteries, when discarded, are classified as hazardous waste due to their ignitability and reactivity.

Also, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) includes lithium batteries in its Universal Waste program. These regulations cover aspects like labeling, storage, and transportation of used batteries​.

If you are transporting lithium batteries, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has specific requirements, including proper packaging, labeling, and documentation.

Depending on where you live, some states have their own lithium battery disposal and recycling requirements.

Working with a trained hazardous waste disposal company allows you to worry less about your lithium battery disposal and more about running your business.

“I own my own business and over the past several years, I’ve done work with three different disposal companies. There was bad communication with these three companies. The job always ended up never being completed. I also encountered multiple billing issues with one of the companies. I’m glad that I found HWH Environmental because they walked with me every step of the project. Thanks again!” 

Allan T. – Indianapolis, IN

“Our business had been looking for hazardous waste services but the quotes we had received were outrageous. It took one phone call to HWH Environmental and they scheduled our project immediately. We didn’t pay outrageous prices with HWH.”
Melinda J. – Denver, CO

“Working in NYC can be tough due to the large population. I work for a large factory and I contacted over 10 hazardous waste companies that offered disposal services.  I wasn't able to get an estimate or get a straight answer from any of them. I’m glad that a colleague recommended HWH Enviornmental to me. They responded quickly and gave us a fair price. Thank you!”
Kristin L. – New York, NY

“If you are looking for a quick answer and a great price, call HWH Environmental. I was a little hesitant to work with HWH because they didn't call me back. However, when I did get in contact with them, they apologized and scheduled service right away. I had a building that was leased out to a dental office, which had produced a great deal of medical waste. HWH Environmental disposed of the waste in no time.”
Morgan R. – Charlotte, NC

“When I called HWH Environmental, they described in detail how the process would go. I didn’t produce a lot of waste that needed to be disposed of but they were fair with their pricing and also did a great job.”
Rita P. – Los Angeles, CA

“You don't have to call other places because HWH Environmental does it all. I will recommend their disposal services because the several times that I have worked with them, they have delivered each time. Keep up the great work!”
