Battery Waste

Battery waste includes used or depleted consumer batteries, car batteries, batteries from electronic equipment and industrial batteries. 

They can contain lead, alkaline, nickel and lithium, which are harmful to the environment if not disposed of appropriately.

It is important to segregate battery waste from general waste stream as they contain resources that can be recycled and reused. As batteries start to break down in landfill, the heavy metals they contain can leach into surface and groundwater, polluting the environment and causing potential harm to humans and wildlife.

The lead, cadmium and nickel within batteries can be removed and recycled for future use in metal making processes. Most materials can be resold as a commodity. Lead can be cleaned and heated within smelting furnaces and poured into ingot moulds. The ingots can be and sent to battery manufacturers, to be reused in the production of new batteries.
