Battery recycling is important for a couple reasons.
1. Lead Acid batteries used in most cars, UPS devices and more, have sulfuric acid in them, so they are dangerous. They can cause you to go blind and burn you severely. Also, lead itself can cause damage to your nervous system, so getting batteries out of the waste stream is important for health and safety.
2. Other batteries like Lithium and Ni-Metal Halide have what are called ‘rare earth’ elements and are very expensive. Also, much of them come from China and Russia, so we have to pay to import them. The less we import the better for our U.S. economy.
