Akkukierrätys Pb Oy is specialised in recycling lead-acid batteries. The purpose of our operations is to handle producer responsibilities on behalf of companies that import lead-acid batteries. These include for example the appropriate collection and recycling of lead-acid batteries that are no longer in use. In all our operations we follow the Finnish Waste Act 646/2011.
Our company was founded in 2008 by some of the key battery importing companies. Akkukierrätys Pb Oy has been approved as a lead-acid battery producer organization by the Pirkanmaa Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centre) which is a national authority for producer responsibility. By joining the producer organization a company transfers its producer responsibilities to the producer organization. On behalf of its members, the producer organization handles tasks, such as the collection and recycling of batteries, consumer communications and reporting to the relevant authorities.
Akkukierrätys Pb Oy is a non-profit organization.
The recycling system with its collection points is available to all consumers so that used lead-acid batteries can be recycled easily and effectively. A properly functioning collection and recycling system ensures that we can utilize environmentally friendly and financially significant raw material that is suitable for reuse.
