Recycling lead-acid batteries is essential for the sustainable manufacturing of batteries and other products made of precious metals. Different heavy metals can leach into the surrounding soil and water supplies, contaminating local wildlife and plants. At Metalico Buffalo, we offer hassle-free lead acid battery recycling services that enable cheaper and safer products in the future while also protecting the environment.
To recycle large lead batteries that come from vehicles or backup power arrays, gather a high volume of batteries for the best return. Local auto shops often collect batteries for smaller quantities and give store credit. However, bringing dozens of batteries to a scrap yard will give a better return than what a smaller shop would offer. Load car batteries in safe packaging for safe transport, or use one of our scrap containers for easier and safer hauling.
The cost of a lead acid battery largely depends on the price of the metals within them. Estimates fluctuate regularly, with lead scrap changing in value from $0.20 to $0.40 per pound.
