  • Resource Recycling processes more than 13.5 million recycled lead-acid batteries annually.

  • Star anodes are used in electroplating tanks for electrolysis activity, and take up less space than the same material in plate, rod or bar form.

  • Restored exploration sites are re-seeded to grow native plants and attract turkey, deer and other wildlife.


  • Exploration is an important way of meeting the domestic demand for minerals. Workers wear personal protective equipment at exploration sites, which are typically no bigger than a quarter-acre in size.

  • Heavy equipment is disassembled, lowered into the mine and reassembled for use 1,000 feet underground. Here an employee loads ore into a haul truck by operating a front-end loader by remote control.

  • Heavy equipment such as a diamond drills are used underground to help locate, access and extract ore deposits.

  • Hand-washing stations and proper hygiene are important tools to minimize lead exposure.

  • Cable insulated with lead wire are stripped and recycled at Resource Recycling to be converted into secondary lead for new products.

  • Wearing adjustable respirators helps to minimize employee exposure to lead at Resource Recycling.

  • Sampling water, and measuring trace amounts of minerals or residual material, is an important step to proper water management and treatment.
