Why should old portable batteries be recycled?
Portable batteries need to be disposed of in safe and environmentally friendly way, as these are heavily regulated under the WEEE directive. Whether you just have the one portable battery, or you work in a data centre, or office, that has many to dispose of, recycling legally is essential. The recycling process is important in a number of ways, including:
- Reusing materials- The plastic casing can be recycled into more battery plastic. The sulfuric acid is collected and resold as commodity acid. The lead is smelted and returned back to batteries, or applied to other uses of lead.
- Preventing environmental damage- the lead acid inside a portable battery is hazardous and can cause damage to the environment, especially if this is just disposed of at landfill, or even worse, fly tipped. Recycling with a professional team can prevent this damage.
