Recycling of components is an integral part in the life of the lead-acid battery and all materials used in a lead battery can actually be recycled.

Exide Technologies is not only one of the world’s largest manufacturers of lead acid batteries, it has made recycling a true focus and is one of the largest secondary lead recyclers in the world.

Exide Technologies has ten recycling facilities worldwide:
- 6 in USA
- 3 in Europe
- 1 in New Zealand.

Cores collection is definitely a key driver for Exide Technologies’ customers and a recycling scheme is available in most European countries, helping our customers:
- Be compliant with the EU legislation law (transposition of the Battery Directive 2006/66/EC) on collection, storage and recycling of lead acid used batteries.
- Make positive contribution to the environment by working with registered partners, collectors & smelters.
- Offer a reverse logistics service to the end-user.
