Battery Scrap Metal in Houston
Recycle Battery Scrap Metal at the South Post Oak Recycling Center
Batteries, which get their name from the military term referring to multiple weapons working as one unit, are made up of two or more electrochemical cells that convert chemical energy into electric energy. The first cited use of the term was by Benjamin Franklin in 1748, but the first constructed battery was by Alessandro Volta in 1800, the voltaic pile. Frederic Daniell created the first marketed battery, which was used in telegraph networks.
The battery has been a staple in modern technology to harness the powers of electronics dating back hundreds of years, and it has only been in recent years where they have been able to be recharged. Thousands of household batteries get thrown away in the trash every year because of lack of knowledge about how to dispose of them properly. At South Post Oak Recycling, convenient recycling of these energy cells is one stop away.
Recycle Batteries for Cash and Help the Environment!
From mobile devices to hybrid cars, batteries power many everyday items. When we take the time to recycle batteries, it saves on the waste of natural resources used to make the materials that go into each battery. It is beneficial to human health and the long-term health of the planet to reuse natural resources that are not readily replaceable.
It also protects water supplies from heavy metal pollution and soil from contamination, both of which are problems when batteries end up in landfills and the materials that make them leach out and soak into the ground or wash away.
