How to Recycle Batteries Responsibly
Recycling batteries is crucial for the environment. Electrolyte or battery acid can be neutralized and reused in new batteries and other manufactured goods. Lead plates can be sent to a smelting operation to be recast as ingots for use in new batteries. Even the plastic and metal casings can be ground up and reprocessed to be reborn in new batteries and other products. But even though recycling batteries is a common practice, it isn’t always done properly.
