Old Car Batteries Can Cause Fires

Where did your old car battery go?

hazards of old batteriesWith this spring forcast to be one of the worst on record for bushfires in South East Queensland we all need to be vigilant on any possible risk.  Your old car battery could be one.

In 2016 2 people died in a bushfire in South Australia that was found to be caused by a car battery that was left in a paddock.  It was surmised that a wire fence swaying in high winds shorted the battery causing the blaze.  This was an extremely unlikely event but its poccurance highlights just how important it is to follow proper disposal processes.

Old car batteries can still hold a charge long after they are unable to start your car which is a fire risk, especially if stored carelessly in a way that other objects may be stacked on top..  They also contain hasardous materials including lead, lead compounds and acid all of which are toxic and can cause nasty injuries if the battery case of broken.

Reliable Batteries recycles all old batteries that we replace through a natuiionally accredited program and we will accept and dispose of other car batteries brought to our workshop on the Gold Coast.  The batteries are either broken down to their basic components for recycling or in some cases may be reconditioned for reuse.  Lead acid batteries are closed-loop recycled, meaning each part the the old batteries is recycled into a new battery. It is estimated that 98% of all lead acid batteries are recycled.
