Commercial Batteries Recycling

Commercial Battery Recycling

Batteries contain lithium, cadmium, nickel, silver, mercury, and other toxic materials and are therefore generally regulated as universal waste. Like other universal wastes, batteries should be collected, recycled, and processed at fully permitted facilities. Batteries are sorted by technology and then smelted in a high-temperature oven to create a highly sought after commodity in the stainless steel market. This process provides a much-needed service to recycle batteries to meet regulatory requirements, while also creating a valuable commodity
