Battery Recycling

Recycle your spent Lead Acid Batteries

Used lead-acid batteries are classified as hazardous waste under the Hazardous Waste Act 1989 and should not be disposed of with the regular garbage.  Each lead-acid battery contains about 2-3 litres of sulfuric acid, as well as lead, both of which are toxic. Lead is a cumulative poison in our bodies and is also harmful to the environment, particularly fish, animals and plants.

More than eighty thousand tonnes of lead-acid batteries are finished with each year. As hazardous waste, it is important these do not go to landfill.  Lead-acid batteries can be re-conditioned or recycled into new products. Recycling of these batteries uses less energy than refining primary ore and removes lead from the environment.

Were serious about making sure spent and used Lead Acid Batteries are properly recycled so every time you buy a battery from Roadside Response you can be sure your old battery is being safely recycled.

I just want to thank you for getting to my house so fast. The car didn’t want to start this morning and I needed to get to work. The guy who changed the battery was real friendly and I was able to get to work almost on time (only 12 minutes late).
