recycle batteries for cash

Recycle Batteries

Environmental Benefits

The Recycling lead acid batteries prevents toxic components being released which can present a potential risk to human health and the environment.

The recycling process uses only 30-40% of the energy taken to produce lead from ore and conserves natural mineral resources.

The Recycling Process

Once the redundant lead acid batteries reach the recycling plant they are broken using a crusher and separated into their different components for individual treatment. The plastic casing is turned into pellets which are mainly used to create new lead acid

batteries. The lead is smelted and recycled into lead grids for new lead acid batteries or lead oxide which is used in the manufacturing process. The sodium sulfate is separated from the redundant battery acid, neutralised and used as washing detergent and in the manufacturing of textiles and glass.

The great news is that you can now get cash for old batteries at http://www.thebatteryrecyclingcompany.co.uk
