Bad batteries are seemingly not being recycled enough. Plenty of them are sitting right now in sheds, garages, or worse, Dumpsters and forests. It’s unfortunate, but it’s true, too. Part of the reason so many unusable batteries are out there is because many people don’t realize that most batteries are recyclable. Truth be told, though, most bad batteries you can recycle at Goldsboro Metal Recycling, at the corner of N. Greenleaf St. and Royall Avenue!
And if you happen to be closer to Raleigh, you can drop them off at Raleigh Metal Recycling, about two miles from downtown Raleigh. Each location accepts the following types of batteries:
- Industrial Batteries (that go on forklifts, tractors, etc.)
- Lead-acid batteries
- Nickel metal hydride batteries
- Lithium ion batteries (cell phones & laptops)
Please come by Monday through Saturday during the day to drop off one or more of your used-up energy cells. You’ll be getting some money for your bad batteries, and you wouldn’t believe how much you’ll be doing for the environment by helping to prevent dangerous lead acids and other chemicals from leaking into the ground.
We’ll give you approximately $0.20-$0.50 per pound, depending on what type of bad battery you have. Car and truck batteries are on the slightly lower end, while laptop and cell phone batteries will usually get you the most for your battery. To discover more detailed information about prices, just give us a call.
