Car batteries represent one of the big success stories in the recycling world. Though they contain toxic materials, including lead and battery acid, these materials are highly recyclable. Today, lead acid car batteries are the most widely recycled consumer product, with over 98% of all such batteries making their way back into the manufacturers’ hands. This is well over the 55% of aluminum cans, the 45% of newspapers, and the 26% of glass bottles.
When your own car battery can no longer support a charge, be sure to dispose of it with a proper lead acid battery recycler. And, if your car should struggle with any other body or engine problems, bring it in to our auto body shop in Seattle for quick and reliable repairs.
