Laws and Regulations for Recycling Laptop Batteries

According to federal and state laws, certain types of batteries are required to end up recycled. Most laptop batteries are of those types. 

The Mercury-Containing and Rechargeable Battery Management Act of 1996, commonly referred to as “The Battery Act”, was drafted to ensure that batteries including li-ion batteries are recycled for reuse, instead of being released into the environment, where they can wreak chemical havok.

By employing the services of Battery Recyclers of America, you’re helping to create a safer world and future. You’re preventing the propagation of dangerous and toxic chemicals into the environment. In each of the 50 states, you can schedule our next-day pickup service to safely recycle your used laptop batteries.

Battery recycling laws vary from state to state. For more information, visit the Battery Council’s website, where they keep a detailed explanation of battery recycling laws by state.

Recycling Laptop Batteries Using Sustainable Practices

In every state besides California, you can safely dispose of common types of batteries, such as AA, AAA, C, and D.

In order to combat the growing issue of battery waste in the environment, the Environmental Protection Agency created the Universal Waste Regulation. This outlines and streamlines the processes of hazardous waste management. For waste such as used laptop batteries, recycling is very important, as laptop batteries contain harmful chemicals. 

Other battery recyclers often outsource their recycling in order to avoid having to abide by the EPA’s regulations, or to avoid paying compliance fees. We don’t. By recycling laptop batteries and other types of batteries in accordance with every law, we’re creating a cleaner, greener future.

Our eco-friendly practices make a difference. In our 10+ years of experience we’ve recycled over 15 million pounds of battery waste. To learn more about our EPA-approved battery recycling practices, check out our infographic

Properly Identifying Laptop Batteries

Laptops can have a variety of different types of batteries, including lithium-ion, nickel-cadmium, and nickel-metal hydride. While all of these types of batteries can (and should) be recycled, the processes of transporting and recycling each type differ. For this reason it’s important that your batteries be properly identified so as to avoid dangerous transportation or recycling accidents.
