Good for Business and Good for the Environment
Lead-acid batteries are by far the most fully recycled of all consumer products. Recycling centers can recover more than 97% of the lead and plastic in a lead-acid battery. Once those reclaimed materials reach a battery manufacturer, they can account for 60-80% of the lead and plastic in a "new" lead-acid battery.
It's a closed-loop lifecycle that can continue indefinitely. The millions of lead-acid batteries now starting vehicles, or powering industrial applications, have been and can continue to be recycled many times. It makes lead-acid battery recycling very green, from both a cost- and resource-saving perspective.
It's Everyone's Responsibility, but Barclay and EnerSys Make It Easier
As your NJ and NY material handling dealership, we recognize our obligation to lead the way in battery recycling. EnerSys provides the personnel, facilities and documentation needed to operate a worldwide recycling program.
Battery distributors, dealers and end-users should recognize their obligations too. Once a battery is purchased, the owner is liable for its proper disposition. If your lead-acid battery is dumped in a landfill or shipped to a scrap dealer that does not handle it properly. YOU may be held responsible for any resulting cleanup costs or environmental damage.
Plus, the stringent laws governing battery recycling, disposal and shipping are a complicated mix of state and federal statutes. Failing to comply with any of them can result in heavy fines and enforcement actions.
That's why we're making battery recycling easier for the entire industry. We accept lead-acid batteries of all sizes, from all manufacturers. Our program makes compliance easier so you don't have to analyze complcated state and federal regulations or expose yourself to liability risks. Instead, you can focus on running your business while Barclay provides a complete range of recycling support services.
