Batteries Recycling

We provide solutions for all types, shapes and sizes. From the standard fluorescent tubes, to HID (high-intensity display) lamps used in streetlights and parking garages, Universal Waste is the preferred choice of hundreds of businesses for all their lamp recycling needs.

We recycle 2 types of batteries

Lithium Primary

Though lithium primary batteries make up only a very small percentage of the overall amount manufactured and disposed of on an annual basis, it very common for their use to be implemented into the design of a piece of equipment with long lives.

For instance, for many years, water meters have used small lithium primary batteries to run for decades at a time.

As a general rule, compared to the more stable alkaline batteries, lithium must be treated with even more care.

Lithium Ion

Lithium ion batteries have become a staple in consumer goods over the past 20 or more years. Though we have seen many innovations in battery technology, most notable with electric vehicles in the auto industry, it is very important the users of those batteries are cognizant of the dangers they pose when not disposed of properly. At the same time, battery quality is determined by the production methods and material used (or not used).

When not handled properly, lithium batteries have been known to combust, causing fires that cannot be put out with water alone.

TV and Monitor Recycling

Universal Waste Disposal Co. is a leading provider for TV and CRT recycling services in Southern California, and we recycle hundreds of cathode-ray tube televisions, plasma, LCD, and LED televisions and monitors every week.

Hard-Drive Shredding

It isn’t always practical to simply erase data on any one of the many devices we use in our places of work, entertainment, and residence.

Sometimes it’s important to think further into the future and the implications of being careless with sensitive or personal user information, patient records or intellectual property.

Universal Waste Disposal embraces innovation and new ways of improving services for our clients, but also the environment, our communities and families.

We take Safety Very Seriously

While many organization are comfortable with the standards for data erasing set forth by the United State Department of Defense, in many cases, even the slightest chance of accessing sensitive information is too much.

This is especially true for any organization in the financial and healthcare sectors, but also manufacturers and anyone with intellectual property.

Upon request, we will send your hard-drives through our state-of-the-art hard-drive shredder.

We’ve even created a line of discrete mail-back data destruction kits with the option to watch a private live stream of your hard-drives, or watch a replay delivered directly via email
