Want to Become a Bebat Collection Point as a Business? Here’s How to Go About it.
Does your business use a lot of batteries? Then you can volunteer to become a Bebat collection point. Read on to find out how easy it is to do this.
Shops or businesses that sell batteries or products with batteries are obliged by law to take back used batteries. This includes batteries they didn’t sell. Such shops and businesses must become Bebat collection points.
However, even as a business that doesn’t sell batteries, you can voluntarily decide to become a collection point. For example, because you use a lot of batteries as a business. That would mean a quantity of around 50 kilos per year, so that it makes both ecological and economic sense to include you as an extra collection point in our rounds. By doing so, you will send out a signal about your commitment and willingness as a business to ensure that batteries are recycled properly. And that’s something from which we all benefit.
