Best Batteries, secondary company, Best Battery Recycling has been providing recycling for those of you who are not sure what to do with your spent batteries. Best Batteries is dedicated to the protection of the environment and we urge you to recycle your old batteries on every occasion. The recycling of lead-acid batteries is a success story. More than 97% of all battery lead is recycled. This is a much higher rate than aluminum cans, newspapers, and glass bottles. The lead-acid battery gains its environmental edge from its closed loop cycle. The typical new lead-acid battery contains 60 to 80% recycled lead and plastic. When a spent battery is collected, it is sent to a permitted recycling smelter, where under strict environmental regulations; the lead and plastic are reclaimed and sent to a new battery manufacturer. The recycling cycle goes on indefinitely. That means the lead and plastic in the lead-acid batteries that you use have been – and will continue to be – recycled many, many times.

Things to Know When Recycling Batteries
Battery Recycling Batteries used in laptops, vehicles, cell phones and other portable electronics represent a significant recycling challenge. The EPA estimates that over three billion batteries are purchased in the United States each year.
Batteries contain heavy metals and other elements which can pose a threat to the environment. When disposed of improperly, the hazardous materials in batteries can:
Cause burns or other injury to eyes and skin
Pollute lakes and streams when the metals are burned
Leach from landfills and enter the water table and ultimately our food supply.
