The list of actual users of lead acid battery & scrap authorized by GPCB under Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management and Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2016 is given below. This list is updated in Jun 2023.
Regulatory Compliance Under Environment Protection Rules
According to Environment Protection Rules, entities must dispose of lead acid scrap with consent from the State Pollution Control Board. Additionally, it highly recommends disposing of the waste through the recycling method. Ensuring that the regulatory authority registers and approves the recycling agency is equally important. Moreover, they frequently update and publish the list of such waste recyclers to ensure compliance.
Verifying Documents of Recycling Agencies
During the disposal of hazardous waste, it is essential to verify the documents of the recycling agency. Furthermore, it’s important to note that not all registered recycling agencies are approved to collect, store, or process all kinds of waste. For instance, e-waste recycling agencies are not allowed for used oil disposal.
