In the spirit of full transparency, Battery Rescue have chosen to publish their recycle battery prices because we want to create a business model where everyone in the battery recycling supply chain is paid fairly. To ensure an adequate return on our BTS Containers we have a sliding scale for prices paid based on annual volumes collected.
Note that prices paid will fluctuate according to the price paid by the Battery Recycler. This is largely a function of the London Metals Exchange (LME) price for lead and the $US/$A exchange rate and is updated by the recycler at the beginning of each month. If the Battery Recycler’s price increases or decreases by more than 5% then the customer price schedule below will be updated. The Graph below shows the LME Lead price for the past 12 months in Australian Dollar terms.
Note: There has been an increase in the LME Price for Lead in the last 3 month’s due to unscheduled shutdowns of the Port Pirie smelter. This has created a backlog of batteries at the battery recyclers, that sell their lead paste to Port Pirie and consequently resulted in them dropping the price they are currently paying for used lead acid batteries.
