Recycling Scooter Batteries

Monster Scooter Parts encourages all of our customers who purchase replacement scooter batteries to RECYCLE their used sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries. While electric scooters are “green” vehicles in that they do not produce airborne exhaust gases that are harmful to the environment, they do carry an extremely toxic material onboard: LEAD, in the form of lead acid in scooter batteries.

Lead poisoning can cause a number of health problems, such as brain damage, kidney damage, hearing impairment, diarrhea, lethargy, and learning disabilities in children. These are very serious health concerns.

Many states have enacted legislation that requires recycling of lead acid batteries. Typically local and state governments provide a means of accepting used batteries, and that is where you should look first when trying to find a facility to recycle your used scooter batteries.

Additionally, many private retailers will accept your used scooter batteries as part of the Call2Recycle program. Additional information can be found at Below is a partial list of national retailers where you can take your scooter battery for recycling:

Circuit City
Home Depot
Office Depot
Office Max
Radio Shack
Sam’s Club

You can find additional information at, including a nice recycling location search feature.

Please do the right thing and recycle those scooter batteries!
