The Power of Recycling

A new lead battery will typically contain over 80% recycled material.1 When that battery is spent, the reuse cycle will continue again and again. This closed loop is a sustainability success story that demonstrates the power of recycling.

Making a Difference

North American battery recyclers like Gopher Resource keep 130 million tons of lead batteries out of landfills annually.2
