Easy and simple way to receive top payouts for used silver oxide watch batteries. The button battery recycling program was designed with a clear understanding of what was needed to create a streamlined approach to a growing problem in 3 easy steps. The common factor all batteries share is that they eventually die and are discarded as trash more often than recycled. Don’t be fooled by the small size of these decaying batteries leaking heavy metals into our soil and water systems. They are just as bad or not worse in compounding the problem. Educating the consumer is the first step since many of our sales reps over time have heard the same thing from customers which is, “We just throw them out.” We as watch battery buyers are willing to pay for used silver oxide batteries on a per lb. basis and accept the other types of non-value batteries for proper recycling at NO cost to the customer. Informing the customer that they have been throwing money away and not acting in green faith gives them something to think about.
Watchmakers and Jewelers from large retail franchises to small mom and pop shops can freely use our program generating an additional revenue stream while at the same time being part of a sustainable solution. Selling your used watch batteries to traveling salesman might sound appealing with cash offered on the spot but in reality they offer much less per lb. and have no real credible downstream recycler documentation posing a potential liability down the line for you and your company, if for some reason they would illegally process or dispose the material.
These small button batteries are produced in the hundreds of millions per year in a variety of chemistry types and are used throughout many industries to power countless items from watches to hearing aids. Our program provides a recycling outlet for all button battery types from any industry. The batteries with no market value in small quantities are absorbed with the purchase of the silver oxide batteries. When large amounts of zero value batteries are accumulated the cost of recycling falls on the customer and at current market rates becomes a bit burdensome. The strong relationship we build with our reputable battery recycler and our logistics expertise in transporting freight allows us to pass large savings making the expense of recycling easily affordable.
The price charged to properly recycle zero value batteries is based on weight and you could contact us for a free quote. Button cells that should be properly recycled are Zinc-Air coin cells mostly found in hearing aids, Lithium coin cells stamped with a CR to represent lithium technology, and Alkaline coin cells. Please follow proper guidelines on how to safely store and transport these used batteries.
