Did you know over 8,000 tonnes of battery go into landfill every year? Batteries are one of the most dangerous common wastes as many are made from heavy metals and harmful elements such as nickel, cadmium, lead and mercury. These substances can pollute soil and water and even damage wildlife and harm humans. Since the conception of the national recycling program, over 8,000 tonnes of lead acid and other types of batteries have entered the recycling process. Here at 101 Batteries, we hope to make a positive difference by contributing to the responsible disposal of these items.
