PROMOTING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS IN LEAD BATTERY RECYCLING

The Association of Battery Recyclers (ABR) represents the companies and thousands of hard-working, essential employees who solve an unseen problem: Responsibly recycling the more than 130 million used lead batteries that our nation disposes of each year. Instead of filling landfills, the recycling industry turns discarded lead battery components into highly valuable, raw materials for new products.
