Lead acid batteries include automotive Car & Van Batteries,  UPS Batteries, Industrial & Fork-lift Batteries, Motorcycle Batteries, and Commercial Batteries. These can be regular lead acid, sealed lead–acid, Gel types, or AGM absorbent glass mat batteries. These are recycled by grinding them, and separating the polymers from the lead. The recovered materials are used in a variety of applications, including new batteries.

 

The lead inside a battery can be recycled. Elemental lead is toxic and should therefore be kept out of the waste stream.
