About Lead Batteries

Get The Lead (Battery) Out!

Lead batteries can be found in many different places and can be scrapped for cash. The most common place you can find a lead battery is in a car. Lead battery prices depend on where you go to scrap them so check with your scrap yard for the current Lead Batteries Scrap Prices they are paying.

Heavy Batteries? Call Your Yard

Lead Batteries are very heavy so if you have several of them, it may be worth it to ask your local scrap yard if they can come by and picked them up for you. Be sure to check the labels of the batteries to ensure that they are lead-acid, otherwise you may have a problem. There are a lot of larger lead batteries that come from backup battery systems that are very heavy, and they alway need to be handled with caution because of the big weight.

Where Can You Find Lead Batteries?

Here are a few places that you can find lead battery scrap:

  • UPS Backups
  • Cars and Other Vehicles
  • Cell Phone Sites that decommission old ones.
  • Motorcycles

Call Before Going

Many scrap yards do not accept other types of batteries because they are too difficult to recycle. Some scrap metal yards only buy lead batteries in bulk and if you can not bring a bulk amount to your scrap yard, the iScrap App can help you schedule a pick up with your closest scrap metal yard.

Call If You Have A Lot Of Batteries

Pricing for lead batteries can be found on the iScrap App. The app can also help you find a scrap metal yard near you that is currently accepting lead batteries and they will also have their lead battery pricing listed. See more Scrapping Videos here.
