The automotive recycling process is a model of environmental responsibility
Every vehicle we recycle goes through a methodical process to minimize environmental impact.

After testing, batteries that are in good condition are recharged & sold to customers for re-use. Other batteries are and sent and rebuilt in a licensed recycling facility.
