Lithium Battery waste is harmful. Very harmful.

We all know that recycling is important to help reduce our environmental impact. But what about recycling lithium-ion batteries? Lithium-ion batteries are now used in everything from cell phones to electric vehicles, and the demand for them is only increasing.  As we continue to use more and more devices that rely on lithium-ion batteries, it’s important to consider how we can recycle them properly. 

About Li-ion Battery

A Li-ion battery is a type of rechargeable battery that uses lithium ions as its cathode. These batteries are commonly used in portable electronics, such as laptops and cell phones. Due to the expensive materials used in their construction, recycling Li-ion batteries is important to reduce waste and conserve resources.  When a Li-ion battery is recycled, the lithium ion cells are separated from the other components. The cells are then cleaned and tested to ensure they are still usable. Once confirmed, the cells are reassembled into new batteries. This process allows for the reuse of valuable materials and helps to keep electronic waste out of landfills.

Hazards of Li-on Battery Waste 

The used li-ion battery can cause environmental and health hazards when not properly recycled. The battery contains toxic chemicals that can contaminate the soil and water if the battery is not disposed of correctly. The chemicals in the battery can also cause respiratory problems and skin irritation in people who come into contact with them. Improper recycling of used li-ion batteries can lead to serious problems for the environment and human health.  

How does MyRecycler assist?

In order to properly recycle your li-ion batteries, there are a few key steps that we take. First, we ensure that the battery is completely discharged. Once the battery is discharged, we can then remove the cells and safely dispose of them in an appropriate location.

After the cells have been removed, we clean the remaining housing and contacts with a mild soap and water solution. Once everything has been cleaned, we can then recycle the materials in accordance with local regulations.

At MyRecycler, we take every measure to ensure that your li-ion batteries are properly recycled and won’t end up in a landfill where they could potentially cause harm.
