The summer season is a popular time to get your car into tiptop shape.  Have you recently checked on the longevity of your car battery?  If your car battery is on the fritz often times you’ll replace it with a new one at the location of your purchase, but did you know that car batteries are recyclable?

If at the time of purchase you do no receive any money towards a new battery with the exchange of your old one, think about scrapping your battery.  A car battery withholds 60-80% of recycled plastic and lead.

If you’re handling the car battery on your own make sure to take the proper precautions.  Don’t forget to wear protective clothing and gloves, especially if the battery is leaking!  When transporting the battery make sure that it’s in a container and is stored upright. Take the proper precautions and you’ll be happy with the profit.

At Upstate Metal Recycling we take great pride in taking your collected scrap metal to help avoid your recyclable waste ending up in a landfill. If you’re interested in recycling your own scrap, bring it to Upstate!
