Recycling Centers

Exide is one of the largest secondary recyclers in the world with six recycling facilities worldwide. We are one of the few companies with the ability to provide Total Battery Management (TBM) in its own facilities. TBM frees customers from the regulatory burdens of handling spent batteries. TBM also keeps recyclable materials in the manufacturing stream instead of landfills.

Recycling recovers 99% of all lead received at our recycling centers. Annually, Exide recycles millions of pounds of lead, recovers and neutralizes millions of gallons of sulfuric acid, and generates millions of pounds of sodium sulfate.

Exide's recycling efforts support our commitment to environmental sustainability around the world.
