What type of batteries are the best to recycle?



  1. 0 Votes

    Lead-acid automobile batteries are the most commonly recycled batteries. “Nearly 90 percent of all lead-acid batteries are recycled. Almost any retailer that sells lead-acid batteries collects used batteries for recycling, as required by most state laws.” The recycling procedure involves crushing the batteries into nickel-sized pieces, then separating the plastic components. Next, they send the plastic to a place where they can reprocess it to make new plastic products and deliver purified lead to battery manufacturers and other industries. Interestingly enough, a typical lead-acid battery contains sixty to eighty percent recycled lead and plastic.
