About Us

Our Part in the Circular Economy

We believe the “take, make, toss” (the linear economic model) is not going to carry all of us into a thriving or sustainable future. We collect and recycle or upcycle batteries and repurpose the secondary commodities for reuse in steel manufacturing, agriculture, and new battery manufacturing, among other applications. We are constantly researching new uses in order to cut down on the mining of virgin elements and continue, “circling” materials found in batteries.

The circular economy or a “take, make, reuse” model will help to sustain our growing population. At Battery Solutions, we believe that the continued pursuit of economic prosperity and quality of life for a growing global population can only be achieved through sustainable and mindful use of natural resources. Batteries are already an important part of our everyday lives and are being used in new applications and in growing numbers as consumers of technology expect higher performance and greater flexibility. As a clean technology company, we understand that this will increase the use of valuable and rare materials and create the potential that some of the chemicals used, if handled improperly, can do harm to the environment. This is a problem that we can help to solve.

Our unique approach to collecting, sorting, and processing end-of-life batteries means every single battery is treated based on its optimal next destination. We sort and grade batteries, which was about 50 million pounds last year, for reuse, repurposing or recycling seeking the best economical outcome while maintaining complete transparency and regulatory compliance.

At Battery Solutions, our team continuously invests in new innovative practices and technologies allowing us to stay at the forefront of the rapidly transforming energy storage industry to offer environmentally and economically sustainable solutions.

UPDATED 7/1/20 – We are OPEN

As circumstances continue to shift, we want to keep you updated on our operation status. An increasing number of states are enacting protections like Michigan’s Stay Home, Stay Safe executive order, limiting operations for non-essential business and shifting many to work from home. As a critical supporter of waste collection, we support essential operations and contribute to the raw minerals supply chain. No matter your battery recycling needs, we are here to help in these unprecedented times. All online orders are being processed as normal but may see delayed shipping times due to the current demand on delivery service providers.

Both our Michigan and Arizona locations continue to operate sending collection solutions, as well as receiving batteries, while observing strict health and safety policies to keep our employees and their families healthy. If you have any questions about the status of your order, please contact our customer service team at customerservice@batterysolutions.com or 800.852.8127
