Proper battery disposal involves specialized recycling methods which must follow specific rules and regulations. Depending on the battery type—which can be lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, or lithium-ion—there are very specific processes to recycle them.
At Battery Concepts International, we follow all of the proper guidelines regarding battery disposal outlined by both the Battery Act and the U.S. Department of Transportation requirements. When you work with our team of professionals, we will ensure that everything is within compliance, and we will help you understand more about the process.
Keeping your business running smoothly relies heavily on the power source you’re using. Once a battery is unable to hold a charge of at least 80% of its rated capacity, it’s no longer viable.
