Apr 18, 2017 | Industry

The fastest growing waste streams in the industrialized world are discarded electronics equipment due to the growing use of these products. In the UPS industry, companies do their part to help reduce the carbon footprint and support a cleaner, more sustainable environment by recycling, reducing and reusing old UPS systems and spent batteries.

Depending on the age, size, brand and condition, used UPS systems can be refurbished and/or recycled. By government and industry regulations, spent and expired batteries are disposed and recycled Per EPA regulations.
