That’s about 430,000 pounds of batteries with about 350,000 pounds of toxic Lead in them. And most of those batteries ended up getting successfully recovered and were sold again to be used by people needing working batteries, avoiding the extra pollution of destructive recycling and being able to save our customers LOTS of money!
Thanks for helping us help you and help our local environment. That’s 12,000 fewer batteries that might otherwise be seen sitting on the ground in someone’s yard or a field or dumped near our river or other places in the Truckee Meadows. We are happy to keep serving our great customers and doing our small part to help keep the area clean from wasted batteries.
