Where Should Drained Batteries Go?

An average household uses 21 batteries a year. Only 2% or less of all the batteries used are recycled.

You might often see a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol on battery packs. Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled. Thus the best thing to do when it comes to safely disposing battery packs is to recycle them at Dubai scrap yards. At our metal recycling company all kinds of batteries wet or dry can be recycled.

Why recycle batteries?

Releasing batteries carelessly into the environment is risky as batteries contain different kinds of heavy metals. The problem arises when these heavy metals are leaked out of the battery packaging and into the soil or the air. This also leads to water pollution. When our ponds, rivers and seas hold such toxic waste, they automatically pose a threat to the invertebrates living in the water. Thus human beings can be harmed through the soil, the air and the water when toxic elements are released into it.

Batteries contain all kinds of metals that can be reused by manufacturers. They contain lead, zinc, plastic, nickel, hydrogen, cadmium, iron nickel, mercury, etc. which can be reused and reprocessed in many ways. Better recycle and reuse than let products like these affect the environment. Lucky Recycling invests in drained batteries. They are handled well at our fully equipped operational recycling facilities. Visit us at www.luckygroup.com.
