NiCad Battery Recycling
NiCad battery recycling (Nickel Cadmium) is very important due to the high levels of heavy metal present inside of each battery, most namely a toxic heavy metal ‘cadmium’ that has been proven to cause cancer and other genetic defects. Thankfully, over 95% percent of nicad batteries are recoverable, so with proper recycling channels we can slow mining operations across the globe and protect our environment. It’s important business and consumers nationwide commit to recycling their old NiCad batteries, otherwise we risk great harm to our environment via landfill contamination.
Nicad batteries are one of the most heavily circulated batteries on the planet, they can be found in anything from power tools to RC toys, among many other places throughout your home or office.
