Larger industrial type batteries, such as lead acid car type batteries and nickel cadmium batteries used in emergency standby systems, should be disposed of by contacting your School/ Directorate’s Building Liaison Officer (BLO) with details of the batteries for disposal.  The BLO then places an online works request via CAFM (Planon) for internal collection by the Estates Directorate.
