Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Netherlands
The Batteries Directive 2006/66/EC was transposed through three legal texts in the Netherlands:Regulation on management of batteries and Accumulators 2008, Decision on Management of Batteries and Accumulators 2008 and Regulations on Batteries and Accumulators Notification Form 2008. Companies placing portable batteries on the Dutch market are required to register as a portable batteries producer and provide the take-back and recycling of waste portable batteries.
SCIEX has joined batteries compliance scheme STIBAT to manage all aspects of batteries collection and recycling in the Netherlands. Please contact STIBAT (079 363 20 90, www.stibat.nl/over-stibat/contact) for further information.
