UN-approved 110-litre barrels that feature the labelling required by legislation regarding the transport of hazardous materials are delivered and picked up one pallet at a time, i.e. five barrels. An exception to this are damaged lithium batteries weighing more than 500 grams, which can also be picked up in one-barrel batches.
The use of barrels must always be agreed upon in writing with Recser Oy, which runs Battery Recycling. For more information, please contact info(a)recser.fi or +358 (0)10 249 1717.

The printable documents for the pick-up consist of a waybill printed on three pages and package-specific address tags. Two of the printed and signed waybills are given to the transporter and one is kept at the pick-up site. In accordance with the requirements set for transfer documents in the Waste Act, the pick-up site must keep the waybill for 3 years.
One printed address tag is attached to each battery pallet. The barrels must be placed ready for pick-up in the usual cargo loading area of the collection site.
