Our Facilities

Tampa, Florida

Our facility in Tampa provides advanced battery recycling services and hundreds of green jobs for citizens throughout the Tampa region.

Storm and Process Water Collection

This pond can hold millions of gallons of storm water runoff for re-use.

Battery Recycling

Our Tampa facility keeps approximately 10 million spent lead-based batteries from landfills annually.


This building contains 20% recycled construction materials, electrical charging stations and many other green features.

About This Facility

Gopher Resource acquired the Tampa facility in 2006 and subsequently invested nearly $100 million in environmental improvements. Doing so allowed us to double our lead battery recycling capacity – and employment ranks – through a second facility. As with our Eagan campus, we continue to make proactive investments in green jobs, safety, sustainability, emerging technologies and supporting the local community.
