Battery Recycling

Our Tampa facility keeps over 11 million spent lead 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.
