Car Battery Disposal



What Is Car Battery Disposal ?

Maybe you own an old car which has officially died. You’ve decided to rip it apart, sell what you can, and recycle the rest. After removing the battery, you realise that is absolutely a mess; corroded, white, maybe even oozing a bit. Basically, this battery is a complete waste. What to do with it? How do you dispose of a used car battery?

The short answer is that you don’t. At least, not if “dispose” means “throw in the rubbish bin.” There are ways to get rid of old batteries, but by law they may not be thrown in with the rest of your trash. Batteries contain hazardous materials and need to be treated accordingly – so like it or not, you’ll need to give your old battery some special treatment at the end of its life.
