Used lead-acid batteries contain lead, lead compounds and sulphuric acid, all elements that are considered to be hazardous waste. As a result, batteries cannot be disposed of with normal types of rubbish, as it’s possible for these toxic contents to trickle from the landfill they end up in and leak into the environment.
Fortunately, batteries can be recycled and repurposed so they can become new products rather than going to waste. Recycling batteries is also beneficial in that doing so requires a significantly lower amount of energy than refining virgin ore does.
