Focused on the Future
Every day is Earth Day for North America’s lead battery recyclers, and this year’s theme “Investing in Our Planet” is the foundation of what the industry does day in and day out. The work our members do exemplifies a commitment to a greener planet; together they ensure lead batteries continue to be the most recycled consumer product in North America. Every day, we invest in research, technology, sustainability and improved health and safety measures to make our planet greener and our employees safer.
Looking Closer for the Big Picture
Even though we support a remarkable 99% recycling rate and lead battery recycling is one of the hidden successes of the recycling movement, its model, closed-loop infrastructure is not well known. It may not be something most people think about every day, like putting aluminum cans aside to be picked up for recycling but lead battery recycling has an enormous positive impact on our lives. In fact, it’s one of the most efficient and sustainable recycling processes we have at our disposal to help protect the environment and provide critical materials to make new batteries.
