Recycling Batteries for Volvo Powertrain

Volvo Powertrain is the world's largest manufacturer of heavy-duty diesel engines, with 8,000 employees in Sweden, France, North and South America. Volvo Powertrain North America is based in Hagerstown in Western Maryland, manufacturing D11, D13 and D16 engines for Volvo and MACK trucks at the 1.5 million square foot facility.

The Volvo Group takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously - Hagerstown has reduced its environmental footprint significantly over the last decade, and the company continues to look for new ways to improve.

Volvo Powertrain contacted our sister company Glasdon Inc, to discuss recycling electronic waste. A Glasdon representative recommended the Nexus® 30 with wall mounting fixings as the perfect discreet solution. The containers are used to collect used batteries, separated by type, and mobile phones. A second order has added optical media waste (CDs and DVDs) to the waste streams collected.
