scrap car batteryLead acid batteries tend to be one of the most common types of scrap batteries that you will come across. Used across platforms from your cars, boats, motorcycles, and even the UPS backups that you connect your computer to, these batteries are always going to be marked with the letters “Pb” on them (the periodic table letters for lead).

Lead batteries are extremely useful, long lasting, and you will always be able to recycle them at Rockaway Recycling. They should never be drained at home because the acid is very harmful and will pollute the ground if you do not handle them correctly.

If you ever are doing a large rip-out from a data center or changing out multiple bus, car, or other auto batteries just let us know and we will be able to provide pallets, cardboard, and shrink wrap for proper packaging.

Here are some places that lead batteries will come out of:

  • Cars, Trucks, Vans, and other (non-hybrid) vehicles.
  • Motorcycles and scooters.
  • Data Centers for backing up the servers.
  • Cell Phone Towers
  • UPS Backups for your computer
