With today’s talk about the potential of the electric car, and the development of advanced battery technology, it’s easy to forget that the biggest green impact in the world of automotive batteries is the recycling of old-technology lead-acid batteries. As the name suggests, traditional batteries are full of lead and acid, both of which are deadly to the environment, making the recycling of car batteries a critical part of the environmental movement. Considering the roughly 100 million batteries replaced annually in the U.S., the importance of battery recycling is clear. In fact, according to the EPA, such batteries are the single most recycled product in the world.
USA Recycling Industries, a Pennsylvania based national recycling company, is focused on the automotive aftermarket services industry, making the recycling of car batteries a top priority. The company acts as a critical link between automotive service centers and destination recyclers. The company provides collection of used batteries and transportation to an approved battery production manufacturer for recycling purposes. Batteries are collected, purchase by the unit or pound, then sold to battery manufacturers who use the recycled materials to produce new auto batteries. As a result, they don’t end up in landfills, which fits the company’s mission statement of ensuring that America’s landfills remain debris-free of its collected materials.
It doesn’t stop there. USA Recycling collects used tires, motor oil and oil filters, lubricants, and all types of automotive related scrap metal, playing an increasingly important role in the nation’s overall automotive recycling industry. Through a series or partnerships, the company serves automotive aftermarket centers across the country, economically capturing materials that would otherwise end up in landfills, oceans, or the atmosphere, while providing investors a way of profiting from the expanding international green movement.
