How can  you recycle batteries?


Battery Recycling is an easier process than many people may think. We at County Battery Services offer a full recycling solution for all batteries from  collection to service. Sorting the batteries correctly before recycling helps the recycling process. This is because batteries are made from many different chemical components such as lithium-ion, zinc or nickel cadmium. Sorting batteries into their different chemistry types means more of the original material can be recovered to make new products.  There are various ways of recycling batteries but the objective is always the sameā€“ recovering as much of the raw material used to make the battery as possible so that it can be used again to make something new.
