Hospitals

Batteries can be found in many life saving medical devices. They can act as either a primary or secondary power supply and can be used to retain critical information systems in case of a power failure.

Batteries power portable equipment such as ventilators, defibrillators and pacemakers. They can even keep sensitive medicines or donor blood cool during transportation.

A great deal of maintenance goes into these batteries so that they can be relied upon during times of need without failure.

But what happens to all of these batteries when they reach their end of useful life?

We can provide you with a convenient program to collect and recycle all of your batteries.

For small quantity generators of batteries and fluorescent lamps, we recommend our Courier Back Battery Program and Courier Back Fluorescent Lamp Program.

Battery Types Accepted

We accept all battery types at Raw Materials Company.

Zinc is one of the world's most commonly used metals. Approximately 30% of the zinc today comes from recycled sources. Raw Materials Company is able to recover zinc from the batteries that you recycle. The zinc we recover is then reused as micronutrients in fertilizer to grow corn for biofuel.

As a result of RMC's recycled materials, farmers are able to increase their yields by over 20 bushels per acre. This is important considering our growing population and the need to make efficient use of our existing farmland.
