Many people don’t know that they could get cash for their used batteries. All year long but even more so during the holiday season American’s use a tremendous amount of batteries. Both rechargeable and single-use batteries contain materials that are considered very hazardous. Thankfully these hazardous materials are also very recyclable, to the point that consumers can even profit from recycling them.
Bring batteries to Recycle Management in Harrisonburg or Stanley Virginia and you will be paid by the pound or piece for all types of consumer batteries. Recycle Management buys all types of batteries from the smallest watch batteries to the largest automotive and industrial size batteries used in vehicles, farm equipment or fork lifts.
Recycling is one of the easiest and most accessible ways for valley residents to reduce their environmental impact while also stimulating the economy. Each year, recycling in the U.S. saves millions of tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions and reduces the need to extract virgin materials from the earth. And in turn provides jobs and income to many American families.
Even rechargeable batteries contain heavy metals, such as lead and cadmium, and other ingredients that are important to keep out of landfills. Recycling them prevents potential pollution and recovers valuable materials for reuse. And for this both established and growing segment of portable power, efficient and necessary recycling resources are widely available.
Before you throw out that next battery, put it aside for recycling. By doing so you will reap the benefits of receiving payment for the used batteries all while protecting the environment.
Recycle Management has two locations in the Shenandoah Valley region of Virginia and welcomes consumers with their recyclable materials 6 days a week. The company has its main recycling center in Stanley Virginia and a collection center in Harrisonburg Virginia.
