Upstate Metal Recycling in Fort Wayne, Indiana has taken the e-waste recycling by storm. Not only does recycling your e-waste safely save billions of dollars, but it also saves it from being exported to countries that fail to dispose of it properly.  As beneficial as e-waste has proven to be, there’s still an issue that many consumers struggle with; that issue being the correct way to dispose of batteries.  Too many batteries are ending up in landfills and contaminating the ground and the water beneath it.   Several battery companies have gathered together to form the Corporation for Battery Recycling (CBR) to help bring more awareness to this growing problem.

Triplepundit.comrecently posted an article regarding the brand-name companies coming together to increase battery recycling. You can read the article here:
