Battery Recycling: Turn Old Batteries Into Cash!

Battery Recycling

St. Louis Battery Recycling Has Never Been Easier!

Tired of looking at those old batteries taking up valuable space in your garage — or worse, creating an eyesore behind the garage or tool shed? Battery recycling is an option you may not have thought of, but it’s easy, convenient, and will put a little cash in your pocket to boot!

Keeping old car batteries stored in the garage or anywhere on your property is not a good idea. Leaking battery acid is not something you, your kids, or your pets want to come in contact with. Batteries also contain lead, and we all know that lead exposure is dangerous — especially to small children.

Of course, you can always return an old battery to the auto parts store when you go there to buy a new one, but they’re definitely not going to pay you for the privilege. Why not take it to a scrap yard and get a little cash for it instead? Most households end up with scrap metal — old copper wire, old appliances like washers, dryers, freezers, etc — that needs to go to the scrap yard anyway. Next time you make a run, don’t forget to include any old vehicle batteries you have on hand.

So now you know. Most scrap yards — including Scrap Mart Metals, serving the St. Louis area since 2011 — will pay you cash for your old car, truck, motorcycle, or lawnmower batteries, along with any ferrous or non-ferrous metal items you’d like to recycle. We offer the highest payouts and offer drive-through service. What could be easier? You’ll clean up your garage, help save the planet, and make money all in just one trip to Scrap Mart Metals!

Contact us anytime if you’re curious about prices currently being paid for all types of metal, electric motors, batteries, and even certain electronic items.

Get Paid to Get Rid of Old Car Batteries

Did you know that car batteries are the most recycled items in the United States? Vehicle batteries contain various materials that can be recycled, including plastic, lead, and electrolyte. These materials can all be taken from a previously used battery and repurposed into new products or even a new battery. In fact, most batteries on the market today are made of previously recycled parts. Plastic and lead can be recycled over and over again, contributing to a healthier world.

Recycling a battery is great for the environment, just like other kinds of recycling. Keeping vehicle batteries out of landfills not only conserves space, but it also keeps the lead from contaminating the soil, keeping it safe for plants and animals.

If the environmental benefits weren’t enough to convince you, keep in mind that using recycled parts helps to cut the costs of manufacturing new vehicle batteries. This benefits the consumer in two ways: the new batteries cost less because the materials are being efficiently reused, and the consumer gets paid for bringing the old battery in to the facility.  It’s a win-win!

Scrap Mart Metals is a licensed recycling facility for vehicle batteries. Not only do they pay you for your old car and marine batteries, but it couldn’t be easier! They have a drive-thru facility; just put the batteries in your trunk and drive over! You won’t even have to get out of your car.
