Advantages of Recycling Batteries
In this digital world, there are machinery and devices that still use batteries as a source of energy. Devices like phones use batteries that are charged by electricity because batteries are portable, unlike electricity. The world has embraced the use of devices and machines that use both batteries and can also be connected directly to electricity. Now that batteries are all over and are used in uncountable applications, how can humans control the number of batteries they sue? Reduce the number of batteries people use in the world by recycling existing ones instead of making news ones because these are the benefits of recycling batteries.
Preserve the natural beauty of the landscape by recycling the batteries. Batteries are made from a variety of metals like cadmium, lithium, lead, manganese, cobalt, nickel, zinc, steel, mercury, and silver. When more batteries are used more raw materials need to be mined and processed to make the batteries hence the amount destroying the natural aesthetics of landscapes with more mining sites.
You can recover non-renewable resources by recycling batteries thus elongating the durability of batteries so that you can generate energy from them for a longer time. The batteries have metals that cannot be renewed, but they can be recycled.
There are no more lands to dump waste batteries. More land for settlements and economic benefits make people suffer when land is converted into dumping sites for more battery waste. Waste increases because when people use more batteries and the expired batteries thus the best way to decrease waste is to recycle the batteries.
You can limit deaths and health problems in living things by recycling batteries. The health of people, plants and animals is affected by the mercury, lead and other poisonous materials that are used to make batteries. Living things that live in beneath the water succumb to death because of the poisonous materials that are in batteries because they find their way into water bodies when the batteries are buried underground. Plants can also absorb these toxic substances from the batteries thus killing animals and human being who feeds on them. Many people who live near dumping sites of batteries are affected by skin cancer because the lead and the mercury that is in the batteries mix in the soil and cause radiation.
Recycle the batteries to reduce the risks of fire breakouts. When waste batteries are heaped together in a dumpsite there is a high chance of a fire outbreak because the batteries have little energy that builds up the more batteries are dumped in one place. A fire outbreak from batteries can be uncontrollable because it may get to critical levels.
