Lead-acid batteries require proper disposal, classified as Hazardous Material by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Most flooded and VRLA batteries are 99% recyclable. Courtney Industrial Battery can decommission and transport your spent battery to our approved reclamation facility. All disposals will be in accordance with federal, state & local regulations. We will issue you a Certificate of Recycling that will state the quantity, chemistry, the date the batteries were recycled, and the recycling facility's EPA identification number. CIB does not own or operate a recycling facility. However, we have established relations with only those secondary smelters that have environmentally clean records and proper federal and state approvals.
