FAQs / Why do damaged, defective and recalled batteries require special shipping?

Damaged batteries are considered potentially hazardous to the public and the environment. If these batteries are shipped without proper packaging and handling, they are more likely to generate a safety incident, such as a spark, during transit from the collection site to the processing facility. In addition, the U.S. DOT requires hazardous materials be transported using special handling procedures.
