Battery Recycling

At Battery Zone we are dedicated to caring for the environment and believe that scrap batteries should be recycled and disposed of responsibly. Utilising Century Yuasa's Used Lead Acid Battery (ULAB) program with SAI Global ISO14001 environmental accreditation, we're committed to environmental sustainability.

Why recycle?

98% of a lead acid battery can be reclaimed through recycling. The lead, plastic and acid components are re-processed and manufactured into an array of other products including guide posts, cabling and detergents.

Sulfuric acid - Sulfuric acid is converted to sodium sulfate to be used in the manufacture of glass, textiles, laundry detergents and fertilisers.

Lead - Battery plates, inter cell connectors and posts made from lead are melted down in a smelter furnace. The molten lead is then formed into ingots for re-use.

Polypropylene - Battery containers and lids are chipped and sent for recycling into rubbish bins, plant pots etc.
