In the June 2015 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report titled Advancing Sustainable Materials Management: 2013 Fact Sheet, assessing disposal and recycling trends in the U.S.A., the EPA compared recycling rates for a multitude of products and materials. It found that the recycling rate of lead-acid batteries is the highest of all consumer products. https://goo.gl/DIF0mO
