    I hope you are kidding. Several threads including sticky on why batteries are a dangerous way to get a tiny amount of lead. Not worth risking death from the chemical fumes for a few ounces of lead used in a battery.

    Scrap.... because all the really pithy and emphatic four letter words were taken and we had to describe this way of getting casting material somehow.

    I brought in 140 lbs. of sorted steel WW and was paid $0.28Can each pound(northern Ontario.). I didn't lie and they didn't ask, they assumed it was steel with lead. Received $1.83 per pound for scrap yellow brass cartridge.

    I'm very familiar with lead acid batteries Ive restored my bikes batt probably 15 times besides there empty been bone dry for 3 or more years now. I have taken dry battery's apart before but for other reasons they didn't yield as much lead as I thought not for the weight. If you have common sense and a few brain cells you can accomplish most anything. Besides I don't believe everything I read especially on the internet Apu fuel which is hydrazine that I refilled in f16s is way more deadly than 20% sulfuric acid with ever be

    You are lucky on the scrap yellow brass cartridge. Some scrap yards won't take them at all. And one will only take them if totally crushed due to some city or county ordinance about them having to be destroyed. I understand they get less for that brass too. In part I think because the occasional live round or primer going pop when it gets melted.

    There is only one area scrap yard that will take my used brass. They also don't give me as much for it but they do take the spent primers with the brass so that helps put some weight in the coffee can.
