Inside the battery recycling process

April 20th, 2011 by

If you’re like us, you love the word “smelt.” OK, it’s not the most elegant word out there, but “smelt” is beautiful in the recycling sense. As we get closer to Earth Day, we thought it would be a good time to take you inside the battery recycling process – specifically, the process of recycling automotive batteries. This great video from How Stuff Works takes you inside a recycling plant:

(Psst! Shameless plug here: Automotive batteries are the most-recycled consumer product in America, and Interstate Batteries is the No. 1 automotive battery recycler. We recycle roughly 1.3 batteries for each one we sell, which means in the last 10 years, we’ve recycled more than 183,184,000 batteries. But who’s counting, really? You can drop off your old lead battery at any Interstate Batteries dealer or Interstate All Battery Center store, and we’ll take it from there. To find a dealer or store near you, visit our Dealer Locator.)
