What We Do

DCR Is Your #1 Source for Data Center Power System Recycling

DCR can help you comply with all pertinent government requirements for battery disposal, recycling and storage, as well as assistance with yearly chemical reporting requirements.

State and EPA Requirements

DCR can help you comply with all pertinent government requirements for battery disposal, recycling and storage, as well as assistance with yearly chemical reporting requirements.

DCR will execute your recycling project, assuming complete responsibility:

  • Uninstall, seal, palletize & transport
  • Clean or remove racking/cabinets
  • Transfer to smelter & recycler
  • Provide complete indemnification

EPA HAZ-MAT Indemnification

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Standards for the Reclamation and Disposal of Lead-Acid Batteries

DCR can provide this service for any brand battery, power magnetics or power electronics:

  • Sealed Lead-Acid, VRLA
  • Wet cell flooded
  • Starting and deep cycle batteries
  • Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS)
  • Switchgear, circuit breakers & PDUs
  • Transfer switches & bypass switches
  • Transformers, inductors, conditioners
  • Capacitors, resistors & other electronics

EPA Reclamation & Recycling for Lead-Acid Batteries

Classified as Hazardous Material by the US Environmental Protection Agency, lead-acid batteries require proper disposal.  Fortunately, the typical flooded battery is 99% recyclable.

Flooded Cells: 99% Recyclable
VRLA: 97%

Although VRLA and Ni-Cad cells are not as reusable, they can be substantially reclaimed with the remainder safely disposed.  DCR will decommission, palletize and transport your spent battery plant to our approved reclamation facility per CFR Title 49.  All disposals will be in accordance with federal, state and local regulations.

DCR then provides a “Certificate of Recycling” indemnifying your company from any and all liabilities associated with the hazardous material.

The Recycling Process

Lead & Other Metals

Refined via thermal metallurgy to a purified state.  Cast into ingot form for reuse in batteries and other products. Steel recycled for production.

Electrolyte & Sulfuric Acid

Chemically reduces to anhydrous sodium sulfate and supplied for use in the production of detergents, papers, glass and anodizing.

Lead Paste & Oxides

De-sulfered with soda ash (recycled from the steel industry), filtered and reclaimed as metallic lead through furnace refraction for reuse in new batteries.

Polypropylene, ABS & Other Plastics

Cleaned, isolated and sorted for reuse in production.

Grid Separators, Fiber Edonites & Misc.

Cleaned and combined as reverbatory fuel filler.

Slag & Remnants

Oxidized via combustion into low toxicity granules sent to licensed hazardous material disposal fills.
