According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), a single car battery contains about 21 pounds of lead, three pounds of plastic, and one gallon of sulfuric acid--all of which can be recycled. From now until Earth Day (April 22), the motoring club is offering free recycling of old car, motorcycle, and boat batteries at various drop-off locations. Sites in California, Nevada, and Utah can be found at batteryroundup.com, while residents of other states can contact their local AAA chapter to find out where to go.
