Disposing of old batteries

Recommended Posts

So I'm sitting with 12 old Ritar batteries (100AH) that I tried to resuscitate, but it seems they are beyond saving. I know these things can be recycled, are there any places that buy old batteries for recycling purposes?

Look for people that buy scrap metal, lead specifically.

I was at the Scrap dealer yesterday. R11/kg for batteries here in PE. (So my old CB Solars are worth about R800 each). I expect one can get a better price the closer you are to JHB.
