Lead-Acid (Automotive) Battery Recycling

Lead-Acid Batteries (automobile batteries) contain hazardous as well as non-hazardous waste that can be recycled. Lead-Acid Batteries are forbidden to be placed in a landfill or incinerated. It is mandatory that we completely recycle these batteries once we receive them. Auto batteries consist of lead, sulfuric acid (both are hazardous), and plastic that is non-hazardous and easily recycled. All batteries received are sent to a battery smelter for total recycling.

Because auto batteries have the potential to contaminate the ground water and lead is very highly toxic to humans (particularly children) and animals, we recommend that batteries be stored and handled properly at home as well as at your shop. Properly store used batteries until they can be brought to the County's facilities or picked up by your recycler (if you are a business owner). We recommend that all batteries should be stored on concrete or impervious surfaces, and should be protected from rain, sun and general weather conditions. 

We accept auto batteries at our recycling centers from households and businesses, free of charge.

Please note that even though we accept batteries from local businesses, we do NOT furnish receipts for disposal for businesses.  Businesses are required to keep receipts of proper recycling. These receipts will have to be produce at the time of your facility inspection in order to prove
proper disposal. Business owners are advised to manage their materials on their own (make their own arrangements) so that they can document proper disposal as required by law.
