What types of batteries can be recycled?

1. Vehicle Batteries                        Interstate Batteries leads the industry in lead recycling. Most of that lead is found in vehicle batteries. Automotive batteries contain recyclable plastic, lead, and electrolyte. Interstate helps America’s repair shops, battery dealers and anyone who has a dead car battery with a green solution.

2. Nickel-based Batteries             Digital cameras, power tools and cordless phones normally run on nickel-cadmium (NiCd) or nickel-metal hydride (NiMh). These batteries are household hazardous waste, and that’s why they should always be recycled.

3. Lithium-based Batteries          Both rechargeable and non-rechargeable lithium batteries can be recycled to create new batteries. They're the battery version of the everlasting gobstopper.

4. Alkaline Batteries                       Recycled alkaline batteries are used for rebar in concrete work. Though some state require them to be recycled, they are not hazardous to throw away.
