Convenient Battery Recycling in Modesto, California
There is nothing negative about recycling batteries. Because of our commitment to the environment and to excellent customer service, Modesto Battery recycles old, used-up batteries. It is illegal to throw away batteries in the state of California, so we want to help make sure you dispose of all batteries correctly
Why Is It Important to Recycle Batteries?
Batteries contain chemicals and metals: mercury, zinc, manganese dioxide, silver, lead, sulfuric acid, plastic, nickel-cadmium, cadmium, nickel-metal hydride and lithium-ion. These materials are toxic and, if they are not contained properly, can be harmful to whatever touches them. Luckily these materials are also valuable, so they can be recycled and reused.
What Are Recycled Batteries Used For?
Once batteries are brought in to be recycled, they are sorted, then broken down into their component parts. Trained chemists convert some materials for use in laundry detergents and cleaning products. Many of the other components are restored for use in new batteries.
