Can my Business Recycle Batteries?
Jan 16, 2017
Does your business use a lot of batteries during the usual day to day? You may be wondering what to do with these batteries and whether or not your business can recycle batteries. The answer is a resounding yes. Not only can you recycle batteries, but you really should recycle them for a number of reasons.
Why Should my Business Recycle Batteries?
You may be asking yourself why you should even recycle batteries—it’s much easier to just throw them away. Your business should recycle batteries because they contain many different types of materials, some of which are recyclable and others which can be dangerous to the environment and human health. This is why it’s important your business recycles batteries; so we can reuse the valuable materials while correctly disposing of any hazardous materials.
How Can my Business Recycle Batteries?
A business can recycle batteries by finding a locally certified recycling center which can handle recycling batteries. Another way your business can recycle batteries is by contacting a local battery waste disposal company and having them come and pick up your battery waste. We recommend the latter if your business runs through a decent amount of batteries each month and/or you don’t have the time to recycle the batteries yourself.
