Lead Acid Batteries Environmental Checklist Mobile App
Used lead-acid batteries, which contain lead and corrosive chemicals, pose very real pollution risks and special handling problems at salvage yards and landfills.
How does it work?
Improperly managed and stored batteries are not only a safety hazard, but can pollute the environment if they crack and leak, particularly when stored outdoors and when subjected to freezing temperatures. Use the Lead Acid Batteries Environmental Checklist mobile app to a help environmental hazards associated with lead-acid battery recycling and disposal. Lead batteries should never be placed in recycling bins for curbside recycling like everyday recycled materials. Contact your local waste management facility for industrial recycling guidelines so that you can develop a recycling program to maximize your natural resources and recycle more than just lead batteries but other solid wastes such as plastic bottles, aluminum cans and scrap metal .
