Recycling

At The Battery Warehouse we provide a free battery recycling service.

99% of a vehicle battery can be recycled, this can be from four main sources of the battery which are detailed below.

 

  1. Lead terminals - the lead is used for new batteries and other lead products
  2. Electrolyte or acid - goes for acid reclamation, and ends up used for fertilizer, chemical production, sodium sulphate production or neutralisation and pre-treatment for discharge.
  3. Internal plates - again, the lead is used for new batteries and other lead products
  4. Plastic container - goes to plastic recycling and gets reused in plastic products

Please be aware that,

LEGISLATION GOVERNING WASTE BATTERIES IN ENGLAND AND WALES

The Hazardous Waste Regulations came into force in July 2005 and replaced the Special Waste Regulations in England and Wales.
All batteries are effectively classed as hazardous waste. This is because they contain corrosive materials such as sulphuric acid or potassium hydroxide, as well as heavy metals such as cadmium and lead. Some can be explosive under certain conditions.
The Hazardous Waste Regulations contain strict rules for the storage, transport and disposal of waste batteries, and anyone failing to comply with these regulations is committing an offence.
