is used in most of the batteries all over the world. So battery
scrap is used to get Lead to reuse through recycling process. It
depends upon the type of battery. Most car, truck, motorcycle, boat
etc. batteries are "Lead Acid" batteries; which means they are
considered to be a hazardous waste due to Lead and acid. A
transporter of spent Lead-Acid batteries must ensure that the
batteries are loaded and braced properly so as to prevent any
damage, leakage of Lead dust or battery fluid, or short circuits. A
bill of lading or Hazardous Waste Manifest is to accompany the
shipment and must be retained for three years to record shipment.
Damaged batteries can be transported with intact batteries when
properly contained. Batteries recyclers have recommended that
damaged batteries be stored and transported in two six millimeter
polyethylene plastic bags. These batteries can be transferred along
with intact spent batteries. If a cap is missing from a spent
battery, it should be replaced.
