Lead Acid Batteries are one of the most commonly found examples of lead scrap. They are commonly used in automobiles, motorcycles, boats, ATVs, and outdoor power equipment such as riding lawn mowers.
Lead-acid batteries account for more than 80% of present day lead usage worldwide, and have an extremely high rate of recycling. The recycling rate is greater than 95% in Europe and the USA.
