Most of our batteries can be disposed for recycling and not landfilling! JJ Scrap Metals supports the initiative and battery recycling program across Australia for the collection of used batteries, which can become a hazard if discarded incorrectly in the environment. Generally, batteries recycling is an activity which aims to reduce the number of used batteries from becoming a part of municipal waste. These batteries contain a lot of toxic chemicals and heavy metals which can raise concerns of water pollution and soil contamination.
