Why Recycle used Batteries?

  • Batteries contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals, like lead and mercury, that can end up polluting the ground and water when thrown away in landfills
  • If batteries are incinerated these toxic materials cause air pollution which is very harmful to humans
  • Mining for new metals is very costly and damaging to the environment - Recycling batteries saves energy and prevents further harm to the environment

The metals in batteries can be recycled over and over.
