Batteries are an indispensable part of most of our lives, but batteries contain heavy metals such as lead, mercury, nickel, zinc manganese, lithium and/or cadmium. These heavy metals, when not disposed of properly, can pose environmental hazards.
The safest way to dispose of batteries is by recycling them. Tossing batteries in landfills can contaminate water supplies if the heavy metals penetrate the ground. Incinerating batteries contaminates the air and creates ash that ends up in landfills as well.
Many businesses and commercial facilities partner with the NJ dumpster rental company to recycle not only batteries but also their cardboard, metal, glass and plastic.
Cardella Waste offers aggressive recycling techniques that ensure that salvageable materials don’t penetrate the environment. In addition to contributing to a healthier environment on several levels, recycling also boosts the economy with the creation of a new workforce of green collar jobs. A study by the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) of the 10 Northeast states from Delaware and north, found 206,000 people employed in the recycling and reuse industries, with $6.8 billion in annual payrolls and $44 billion in annual revenues. Cardella Waste is pleased to be a part of this.
