Save our mother nature by recycling your car batteries!
Yes, you heard us right. You can recycle your car battery.
Used car batteries and other lead acid batteries contain lead, lead compounds, and/or sulphuric acid, all of which are hazardous. Seventy thousand tonnes of lead-acid batteries are finished with each year, and they are 98% recyclable.
Importance of recycling car batteries
- Each car battery contains around 2-3 litres of sulfuric acid, as well as lead, and lead compounds, all of which are toxic.
- Car batteries can be reconditioned or recycled into new products made from the lead, sulphuric acid and polypropylene. Recycling of these batteries uses less energy than refining primary ore and removes lead from the environment.
- Car Batteries can be recycled into a range of products from plant pots to laundry detergents and new batteries.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s start recycling, now!
