RE: Lead Acid Battery Disposal
At 200 batteries a month one has to ask the question why are they going
bad? I would question how good the batteries are in the first place and
also look into how they are used and maintained. There are several vendors
of recharges using trickle and/or pulse charging to extend battery life.
Look into the use/cycling of the battery, by changing operating cycles
they could extend the life. Do they test the battery, or assume that every
X months they need to be replaced?
Hopefully this is useful and P2Tech isn't seen as the preachings of
disciples of Bob Pojasek

Subject: Lead Acid Battery Disposal
Working with an alarm company that generates about 200 lead acid
batteries per month. The 12 volt batteries are about 4" inch square and
are 4 or 7 amp. I'm trying some waste exchanges, but thought I'd post in
case anyone had any ideas. Thanks.
