Exide Sustainability Recycling

Our commitment to recycling and environmental responsibility is unwavering. That’s why we are one of the largest secondary recyclers in the world, and one of the few companies with the ability to provide Total Battery Management, also known as closed loop recycling. That process frees customers from the burden of handling spent batteries in their own facilities.

Recycling recovers 99% of all lead received at our recycling centers. Every year we recycle millions of pounds of lead and recover and neutralize millions of gallons of sulfuric acid.  Our robust, highly controlled recycling process is a critical part of our global commitment to environmental sustainability.
