After uncertainty over whether the UK met its 10 percent waste portable battery collection target for 2010, the producer compliance scheme whose data was missing from the original figures said it had resolved its differences with the Environment Agency (EA)
The EU Batteries Directive means the UK has to collect 25 percent of waste portable batteries for recycling by 2012.
To help meet this goal, an interim 10 percent collection target was set last year.
The CCR REBAT scheme's data absent from the 9.56 percent collection rate reported by the EA in March this year. But it has been reported that it had now resolved its differences with the EA and that a formal procedure involving the Agency will soon be finalised.
CCR REBAT's UK managing director, Stephan Matz told letsrecycle.com: "With regards to 2010 CCR had a different interpretation of the regulations in some aspects - i.e. definition of sorting, the role of recyclers in abroad - than the EA which has been resolved for the future.
"The formal procedure is not finished yet but it should be shortly. CCR is very confident to keep going with its expansion course."
Matz also highlighted CCR REBAT's recent audit for the current compliance period, revealing: "CCR REBAT has been audited for 2011 just one week ago and both sides were pretty happy with the outcome and the performance."
"More than 4,000 collection points are happy with the service of CCR REBAT in the UK," he added.
