Terrapure is a leading provider of recycling solutions that contribute to the circular economy of batteries and create value for customers throughout North America. With an unwavering focus on environmental, health and safety excellence, we recycle lead batteries and provide recovered lead and plastics to the battery manufacturing industry for reuse in the creation of new products, while significantly reducing waste requiring disposal.

What We Do

We continually strive to find new ways to recover and upgrade the constituent components of end-of-life batteries to create value for our customers and society.

We partner with all major North American battery manufacturers to provide a sustainable closed-loop, circular-economy solution to capture spent batteries and recover their valuable components locally for reuse. In doing so, we help achieve a 99 percent recycling rate – the highest of any consumer product in North America. This includes collecting and processing lead batteries and producing high-quality recycled lead and polypropylene pellets for battery manufacturers.
