When you recycle your used lead battery, you are contributing to the overall sustainability of the lead battery industry. This circular economy minimizes waste, helps protect our environment and ensures abundant supplies of lead and plastic to produce new batteries to keep our supply chains and people on the move.

In all 50 states, retailers can charge a battery core charge and in over 30 states, it is required by law. For more detailed information, visit our state recycling laws page.
