Are Lithium Ion Batteries Recyclable?

Lithium Ion Battery Recyclable

Yes! Lithium Ion Batteries are recyclable. Lithium-ion batteries are rechargeable batteries often found in handheld electronics such as cell phones and e-readers, as well as other electronics. Most curbside recycling programs do not collect batteries, because they can contaminate other recyclable materials and are more difficult to breakdown than paper, glass, and plastic.  However, there are many places that collect lithium-ion batteries for recycling. These include many Best Buy and Home Depot locations for standard rechargeable Li-Ion batteries and O'Rielly Auto Parts for car batteries.
