Modern Waste provides comprehensive battery recycling services that adhere to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) guidelines for proper battery disposal. Individual batteries may be small, but collectively, they can have a tremendous impact on our environment. Batteries often contain metals, liquids, or other materials that could cause fires, be unhealthy, or be hazardous to the environment, if they are not handled and disposed of properly. These materials can include:
- Sulfuric Acid
- Nickel Metal Hydride
When you use a battery recycling service, you are ensuring that the dangerous materials contained in batteries are not making their way into local landfills where they can seep into local waterways.
How Battery Recycling Works
Battery recycling involves a number of processes depending on the type of battery being recycled. For instance, lead acid battery recycling involves a series of steps in which the lead, the plastic and the sulfuric acid are each broken down and separated to be used in another manufacturing process. Zinc or alkaline battery recycling often involves separating the zinc carbon to use in fertilizer and the metals being used in the manufacturing of low-grade steel, like that used to make rebar. Nickel and lithium-based batteries follow their own individual recycling methods with the metals frequently used in the manufacture of new batteries.
The battery recycling services provided by Modern Waste are performed in accordance with the EPA’s Mercury-Containing Rechargeable Battery Management Act of 1996 (“Battery Act”).
