Scrap Battery Prices
Bring in your car batteries and other scrap metals to Reclamet in Thanet, Kent. We accept car batteries for scrap, as well as forklift batteries. We do not accept Ni-Cad batteries, only lead-acid based batteries. Look for the “PB” on the batteries to identify them as lead-acid batteries. As long as you can see that, you know you have a lead battery and we accept those for scrap.
For years, Reclamet has been buying lead-acid batteries for scrap metal. We can provide you with current scrap prices for your lead batteries that you may get from cars, trucks, and other automobiles. You can check your batteries for the symbol “Pb” to ensure that it is a lead battery. Contact us for scrap battery prices and get a quote for your bulk amount of battery scrap.
Lead acid batteries tend to be one of the most common types of scrap batteries that you will come across. Used across platforms from your cars, boats, motorcycles, and even the UPS backups that you connect your computer to, these batteries are always going to be marked with the letters “Pb” on them (the periodic table letters for lead).

Here are some places that lead batteries will come out of:
- Cars, Trucks, Vans, and other (non-hybrid) vehicles.
- Motorcycles and scooters.

How much are scrap batteries worth?
It depends on weight. Some scrap collectors may offer rates per battery. But mostly rates are given per tonne.
Car batteries contain lead which is the main metal of value. Scrap battery prices could fluctuate throughout the day. You’ll sometimes be paid more if you deliver your batteries. You could receive a higher rate if you have larger quantities of batteries to recycle.

Why recycle my battery?
The lead in car batteries is up to 99% recycled making them one of the most recycled consumer products in the world, reducing the need for new raw materials and components. The lead and acid from batteries can end up spilling into streams, lakes and landfills causing damage to the environment which is why properly disposing of them is so important.
