C&D Recycling Program
As part of our commitment to sustainability, every C&D Technologies battery comes with a lifetime recycling policy.
Some companies claim to relieve you of the entire burden regarding the disposal and recycling of your lead-acid battery, but often they only provide partial or limited support. Still, under current law, no person or company involved can escape their “cradle to grave” responsibility to dispose of their lead-acid battery products in a safe and environmentally conscious manner. The C&D Lead Acid Battery Collection and Recycling Program provides an eco-friendly, safe, convenient, low-cost recycling option.
We pick up your lead-acid batteries at your location and, dependent on volume, take them directly to one of our EPA-certified lead recycling partners.
No scrap dealers are involved.
Partial truckload arrangements are possible.
Fewer waste streams at the smelter mean less potential for future liability.
A certificate of recycling is available upon request. All recyclable battery components, including lead, plastics and acid, are recycled.
C&D is independent of the smelter operations and makes critical environmental compliance assessments through our internal audit program.
C&D’s recycling partners have an RCRA Part B permit and are open to customer inspections/audits upon request.
C&D has recycling partners nationwide.
