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
