The company also purchases lead acid batteries such as starter, traction or standby batteries, with prices available on request. Lead acid batteries are used for vehicle starting applications, and as an emergency back-up supply for essential systems in hospitals, banks, telephone exchanges etc.

Lead acid batteries contain lead, a valuable, toxic heavy metal which can contribute to soil and water pollution if waste batteries are disposed of incorrectly. Due to the hazardous nature of batteries, separate legislation for the management of waste batteries was transposed into Irish law in 2008 and The Recycling Village Ltd treat all batteries according to the provisions of the regulations.
