Recycle Your Old Car Battery Today

There is a major demand in Perth for old car batteries and lead scrap metal, so don’t just let your old car battery sit and gather dust on your property. At Jacobo & Son in Osborne Park, we offer cash for old car batteries, and we offer some of the best prices in all of Perth.

Lead and scrap metal recycling is not only a great way to make money, it’s also an environmentally sustainable method of disposing of your unwanted goods. The materials used to construct car batteries can be dangerous for humans and the environment, so make sure you enlist the help of professionals.

Why Recycle?

Car batteries work by converting chemical energy into electrical energy by using sulphuric acid. This chemical can be cleaned and reused in new batteries; however, it is extremely corrosive and must be handled carefully by an experienced team.

Batteries also consist of multiple kilograms of lead – this is a toxic metal that human beings shouldn’t come into direct contact with. It is absolutely vital that the lead in batteries is retrieved to prevent it from contaminating natural water sources. Finally, the outer plastic casing on car batteries must be thoroughly cleaned and recycled to be used in other applications.

Materials Accepted

We accept a wide range of materials at our recycling centre including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, old appliances, car engines, radiators, air conditioning units and more.
