Core Charge Policy
What is a Core Charge?
In 2014, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported that the rate of lead battery recovery was almost 99 percent. On average, a new lead battery is comprised of more than 80 percent recycled lead battery material. Every part of the battery, from lead and plastic to sulfuric acid, is recyclable and reusable in manufacturing new batteries. The reason this is possible is because all manufacturers, distributors and retailers charge a refundable fee referred to as a core charge. This monetary incentive ensures batteries are properly returned and recycled.
