Not sure what to do with your old batteries?

At Battery Rush we care about the environment. We are doing our part for the environment each time a battery is replaced. Up to 98% of a battery is able to be broken down to make other materials such as new batteries.


Battery Recycling Disposal Collection

Throwing Batteries in the bin or leaving them in a public place can incur a hefty fine so we encourage everyone to recycle old batteries the correct way. Car batteries can be recycled by breaking them down into their component parts and processing them for reuse. The lead and acid can be extracted and used to make new batteries, while the plastic parts can be melted down and used to make new plastic products. Recycling car batteries helps to conserve natural resources and reduce pollution, as well as reduce the demand for raw materials to produce new batteries.

Batteries are made from a number of different materials. When batteries are not properly disposed, the casing can disintegrate and the toxic chemicals within can leak into the surrounding environment. The leaking material can contaminate the soil and water and some of the elements can accumulate in wildlife and humans. They’re harmful to our environment however in the right hands your old battery can be put to good use.

Through partnering with a recognised company, be mindful, the next time you have your battery replaced with Battery Rush, you will be doing your part by being environmentally conscious and responsibly disposing your old battery the right way. Our technicians will leave you hassle free by recycling your old battery with every battery replacement. We offer a free collection and disposal service for all batteries free of charge.

Other Recycling Centres

To recycle a car battery, it is generally best to take it to a recycling centre that specialises in battery recycling. These centres have the equipment and expertise to safely handle and recycle batteries. Some auto repair shops and auto parts stores also offer battery recycling services.
