EPA is currently exploring how the Federal government and States can most effectively promote lead-acid battery recycling. In response to a request from EPA's Office of Solid Waste, the Program Evaluation Division of the Office of Policy, Planning and Evaluation conducted a study of States' lead-acid battery recycling programs. Thirty-four States and one city currently ban the disposal of lead-acid batteries. Thirty laws have additional requirements, including 'take back' provisions, which require a retailer to accept a used battery from a customer when a new one is purchased. The purpose of PED's study was to provide OSW and other offices with a quick review of the States' experience in using legislation to promote lead-acid battery recycling.
