• ULAB’s contain heavy metals like mercury, lead, arsenic,
selenium, nickel, and others which contaminate environment
if improperly disposed, contaminated ACID in the battery
may drain through the land fill and destroy the plants and
spoil the underground water resources.
• ULAB’s, considered waste and harmful to our environment,
recycling it is the best for the planet and human . Recycling
keeps heavy metals out of landfills and maintain clean air, It
also saves resources because of recovering plastic and
metals which can be used again .
