Yes, you can scrap double A batteries. In fact, battery recycling has become more popular over the last 10 years for a few reasons.
Products that are battery powered are being manufactured more these days because of people’s desire for goods that are portable and not solely dependent on a cord to operate.
Scrap batteries can be reused so many companies will offer free battery disposal to you if you just want to get rid of double A batteries that you have.
On the other hand, there are scrap yards, electronic scrap buyers and battery buyers that are willing to pay you for your old batteries working or dead.
One other reason why scrapping or recycling old batteries, not just double A batteries, is becoming a more routine thing to do today is efforts within your city and state to keep old batteries from reaching our landfills.
We all know what happens when you leave old batteries in a device for to long, they corrode. This is one of the main reasons why you see battery recycling boxes inside of every cell phone store and many other random business locations.
A company just like yours, comes to pick up the box of old batteries once it is full. Depending on the agreement in place, the business may receive a small fee from the battery scrap collectors or there may be some monthly fee that the scrap collector pays to have the battery recycling box at the location.
We do not suggest or recommend that you take apart or disassemble any battery big or small because the process can be hazardous.
Therefore, if this is a business that you would like to get into you need to learn how to handle potentially hazardous materials safely.
Even if you choose to buy your own battery recycling boxes, put them in local businesses and then sell your loads to scrap yards or battery recyclers, you still need to know how to handle them correctly, especially erupted scrap batteries.
