Recycling

Recycle Chart

Lead-acid batteries are by far the most fully recycled of all consumer products. Recycling centers can recover more than 97% of the lead and plastic in a lead-acid battery. Once those reclaimed materials reach a battery manufacturer, they can account for 60-80% of the lead and plastic in a “new” lead-acid battery. It’s a closed-loop lifecycle that can continue indefinitely. It makes lead-acid battery recycling very green from both a cost and resource-saving perspective. 

There are stringent state and federal laws governing battery recycling and disposal, but Douglas Battery Representatives can protect you from the penalties of non-compliance. 

  • Lead-acid batteries of all types accepted 
  • Approved secondary lead smelters 
  • Onsite pickup of truck load and LTL quantities  

Please contact your local dealer for information on how to recycle your scrap batteries.
