Price List – Recycle Battery Prices

In the spirit of full transparency, Battery Rescue publish the price we pay for your used / waste lead acid batteries. Our metro Perth and Regional WA price schedules can be found below.

Our used battery collection and recycling service, delivers a safer, convenient service that meets your regulatory requirements, while reducing your environmental impact. For details on our Western Australian Regional & Mining battery collection service.

To ensure an adequate return on our BTS Containers we have a sliding scale for prices paid based on annual volumes collected. Also the price paid will fluctuate according to the price paid by our 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 price we receive from the recycler increases or decreases by more than 5%, then our customer price schedule below, will be updated.

The Graph below shows the LME Lead price for the past 12 months in Australian Dollar terms and the price we receive from our battery recycler.
