Hybrid NiMH Battery Recycling Information

Refer to your vehicle's Owner/Service Manual for important instructions regarding proper battery handling.

The Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango Hybrid vehicles contain a High Voltage 300 Volt NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) battery. It is important to understand that these batteries can be recycled. Prior to doing so, however, Chrysler recommends that you refer to and understand the applicable federal, state, provincial and local laws and regulations governing the recycling, handling, and shipping of such batteries and materials. This is important because under law such batteries can under certain circumstances be deemed waste or dangerous goods.

NiMH batteries contain several components, including nickel, copper and steel, each of which has value as recycled materials. Dealers should follow the Service Information Procedures for proper disconnecting, removing, storing and handling, and, if necessary, disposal of the NiMH battery packs. Such Service Procedures can be bought online at www.techauthority.com or you can also check the yellow pages to locate the nearest Chrysler or Dodge dealership to get qualified support. As the batteries weigh about 150 pounds (70 kg), it is important that you have appropriate equipment and personnel available when removing the battery from the vehicle.

Chrysler Group LLC, in offering environmentally friendly vehicles, encourages the recycling of these High Voltage 300 Volt NiMH batteries. While there are several companies that have the ability to properly recycle NiMH batteries, two of these companies are:

Generally, under U.S. federal and state law, sealed, non-leaking NiMH batteries are considered dry cell batteries and therefore non hazardous waste (with this exception ? in California, NiMH batteries must be managed under California Universal Waste Rules). In addition, NiMH batteries are unregulated under U.S. Department of Transportation regulations.

If NiMH batteries are found to be leaking, they will be regulated as hazardous waste under federal and state regulations, and as a hazardous material under DOT. The recycling companies listed above have the ability to accept these batteries, but additional measures must be taken by the shipper to transport and dispose of them. Both you and the shipper have responsibility for complying with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations.

In Canada, sealed, non-leaking NiMH batteries intended for recycle are not regulated under the Canadian Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Act as long as the batteries are shipped according to special provision 39 (2) of those regulations. If the batteries are found to be leaking, they will be regulated as a hazardous waste under applicable provincial regulations, and as a dangerous good under TDG. In this case the shipper must ship the batteries according to special provision 39 (1) in the TDG regulations. Both you and the shipper have responsibility for complying with applicable federal, provincial and local laws and regulations.
