One of the best decisions you can make when returning your old battery is finding a place that will reuse it in the most environmentally safe way.
East Penn completely recycles all three major battery components for new battery use: lead, polypropylene (plastic), and acid.
East Penn was the first in the industry to develop a method for acid reclamation. In fact, through our innovative process, even the sulfur fumes created through recycling are turned into a liquid fertilizer for agricultural purposes. Not many recycling programs can claim that extent of environmental protection. If you would like to learn more about our Recycling Success Story, click here.
East Penn makes recycling your battery convenient with a network of factory warehouses located throughout the United States and Canada that will return your battery for proper recycling.
To find out where you can bring your batteries for recycling, please enter your U.S. Zip Code or choose the nearest Canadian City to you from the list, then please contact the closest East Penn warehouse to you. Our branch personnel will be happy to help you.
Please Note: East Penn only recycles lead-acid batteries. Any other type of battery is a hazard to our recycling facility. Contact the manufacturer or look for contact information on the battery to recycle other battery types such as Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH), Nickel Cadmium (NiCD), or Lithium-ion (Li-ion).
