DiD you kNow? CAR BATTERIES
According to the International Battery Council, lead car batteries are recycled more than any other consumer product. It’s estimated that nearly 99% of all batteries are recycled compared to 55% of all aluminum cans and 45% of newspapers.
When you recycle your old car or lawn and garden batteries they are broken apart and the plastic is separated from the lead and sulfuric acid. Each element then goes into a separate stream for treatment or reuse.
In Salem, you can take you old batteries to Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone or O’Reilly Auto Parts and exchange them for in-store merchandise credits that can be used for future purchases.
