Environmental protection

A vehicle contains the following components: fuel, air, oil filters, shock absorbers, oils, coolants, brake fluid, lead acid batteries, brake pads, electronic equipment, etc. i.e. All resulting parts, materials, hazardous and non-hazardous waste must be sorted, used and recycled in this way contributing to waste prevention and cannot be thrown out together with household waste.

Currently, a particular problem for manufacturers is limiting the use of harmful substances in the production of cars. It is important to ensure that the materials used in the production of cars do not pose a risk to the environment and human health. This applies not only to the production and operation phases of the car, but also to its subsequent processing. Vehicle manufacturers set themselves the task of using as many materials as possible from recycled secondary raw materials in the car, using bioplastics, etc. i.e.

  • Lead-acid batteries must be collected and recycled in such a way that all the materials from which they are made can be reused, so they cannot be self-degraded. Lead acid batteries are waste containing many hazardous chemicals. Improper handling of old batteries releases a lot of dangerous substances into the environment during the decomposition process or damage to the battery case. Hazardous substances pollute groundwater, poison the soil, plants, and have a negative impact on human health. Due to the environment contaminated with heavy metals and other dangerous substances, skin infections, oncological and respiratory diseases, circulatory, immune, nervous system and other disorders are increasing.

  • Waste batteries must be collected separately: waste batteries and accumulators must be collected separately in special containers, barrels, boxes or other containers designed for this purpose. Disposal of hazardous waste together with unsorted waste is prohibited and regulated by legislation. During the operation of battery waste collection, processing and recycling systems, used batteries are collected, sorted and recycled. The user can hand over the unused battery to the waste manager or take it to a specially marked collection point. Waste is collected from consumers free of charge. Waste is placed in specially marked containers. Battery waste can also be delivered to municipal bulk waste sites or hazardous waste collection points. Information on waste collection points and recycling options can be obtained from municipal environmental departments, battery and battery sales points, the website of the Ministry of the Environment and other information publications.

    This symbol on batteries and accumulators means that waste batteries and accumulators must be collected separately, not disposed of together with unsorted municipal waste.

  • Correct sorting, collection, handling and recycling of battery waste protects the environment and conserves natural resources. According to the requirements of the European Union, lead-containing accumulators and batteries must be collected and recycled in such a way that it is possible to reuse all the waste generated during the breakdown - lead, plastic, sulfuric acid and other chemicals.

    Given to waste managers, most of the materials return to the market and serve people as new products. The rest of the waste that cannot be recycled is disposed of in an environmentally safe way. By properly collecting old accumulators and batteries and recycling them, we will save raw materials and preserve a clean environment for future generations.

    Used lead batteries can also be delivered free of charge to our company at the address: Pakalnės st. 5B, Domeikava, Kaunas district.

  • Improper waste management harms public health and the environment. Changing values in society encourage excessive consumption, as a result of which excessive amounts of waste are constantly generated, their improper management pollutes the air, land and water, and irreparably changes nature and human health. Therefore, waste management becomes one of the most relevant and meaningful types of human activity.

    Unsorted and improperly handled packaging waste can turn our country into one big landfill in a few decades.

    It is important to sort waste at the place of its generation, recycle or otherwise use it, protecting the environment and conserving natural resources.

    For example:

    Used tires can pollute our environment for a long time, as they decompose in just a few hundred years. Used tires pose a risk to the environment and human health. Worn out tires left in ditches, ditches or on the banks of the river not only darken the view, but can also become the cause of a fire. The tire is a petroleum product, so when it burns, it emits many harmful substances into the environment, which affect the occurrence of lung, heart and blood circulation diseases.

    Rubber is the main component of tires, the properties of which do not change much, even after the end of the tire's service life. Taking this into account, it is appropriate to recycle tires by separating the rubber from other components (metal, textile) and then use it to make other products. The resulting rubber granules can be used to produce asphalt, rubber surfaces (for example, for children's playgrounds), parking protection and other products.

    Worn tires can also be used to generate energy. AB "Akmenės cementas" uses tires for this purpose in Lithuania. They are burned using special filters that neutralize harmful substances released during burning. Burning takes place in an extremely high temperature furnace, and the resulting ash is used to produce cement.

    It is prohibited to dispose of used tires together with municipal and non-municipal waste. It is forbidden to burn them.

    Used tires can be returned free of charge at tire distribution points when the waste tires are returned for the same type of vehicle and there are as many of them as new ones are purchased. Residents can return worn tires to large waste collection sites owned by municipalities. The list can be found here: https://am.lrv.lt/en

    Residents can return up to 4 car tires to such sites free of charge per year. Before taking your waste to the nearest site, you should check what kind of waste it accepts, as different sites accept different types of waste, for example, household hazardous waste is not accepted everywhere. You can bring waste to the sites at any time of their work. Detailed information about bulky waste collection sites operating in municipalities, their addresses, working hours and accepted waste is provided by representatives of municipalities. The addresses of the sites are published on the websites of municipalities and the Ministry of the Environment.

    Used car fuel, oil and air filters are extremely dangerous for the environment. If handled improperly, they can endanger both the environment and human health.

    Car fuel and oil filters consist of metal, oil, fuel residues and a filtering element: oil contains almost a third of the elements of the Mendeleev table: copper, zinc, heavy metals. Oil is rich in heavy metals and other chemical compounds harmful to the environment. Disposing of fuel, air or oil filters into the environment contaminates large areas of the ground, and also penetrates into deeper layers, which can lead to the risk of contaminating groundwater, rivers and drinking water sources. It is no secret that some citizens burn this waste, further polluting the environment and the air, releasing heavy metals and carcinogenic compounds that cause respiratory diseases. Mixing this waste with municipal and non-municipal waste is prohibited.

    The highest concentration of harmful substances is released into the environment not in the presence of metals, but specifically during metal production processes. The metal can be processed indefinitely - its main properties do not change, and much less energy is consumed during processing than when it is produced from ore.

    Residents can hand over the accumulated waste to a waste manager who has the right to handle such waste.

    Our company cooperates with waste management companies that are registered managers of fuel, oil and air filters and other hazardous and non-hazardous waste.

    Waste can be left at companies providing vehicle maintenance and repair services, if a person uses the services of these companies when managing his vehicle.

    Waste from used filters can also be returned to large waste sites owned by municipalities. You can find a more detailed list here: https://am.lrv.lt/en
