Collection and Recycling of Small Rechargeable Batteries

Since the revised Law for Promotion of Effective Utilization of Resources ("revised recycling law") came into effect on April 1, 2001, battery manufacturers and manufacturers of electronics devices that use batteries have been legally obliged to collect and recycle used small rechargeable batteries.
Maruyama's battery-powered sprayers use this type of battery, so to achieve compliance with the revised recycling law, Maruyama has become a member of the Japan Portable Rechargeable Battery Recycling Center (JBRC) and is actively involved in the battery collection and recycling activities of this organization. Maruyama requests the support of all customers in our battery recycling activities.

Cautions when bringing batteries in for recycling

Shorting of the battery terminals might cause the batteries to emit smoke or catch fire. Be sure to isolate battery terminals by covering them with tape. Note that rechargeable lead-acid batteries cannot be recycled under this system.
