Why Recycle batteries?
Hundreds of millions of pounds of batteries end up in landfills in the US each year. They do not decompose and can potentially release harmful chemicals. Batteries are made out of useful resources such as zinc and cadmium which can be recycled and recovered from used and discarded batteries.
“Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are used in many products such as electronics, toys, wireless headphones, handheld power tools, small and large appliances, electric vehicles, and electrical energy storage systems. If not properly managed at the end of their useful life, they can cause harm to human health or the environment.” – EPA
