Do you have old battery-powered devices lying around the house? Redwood Materials will like to get its hands on the batteries to recycle them into EV batteries.
The company has teamed up with Audi so that you can drop off your old devices at the auto brand’s dealership in the US.
Redwood set up the Consumer Recycling Program to make it easy for people to turn in old batteries for recycling instead of sending them to landfill.
Visitors to select Audi dealerships across the US will see Redwood-branded recycling bins.
They can drop their household rechargeable lithium-ion batteries in them, and Redwood will turn them into batteries for use in electric vehicles.
You can drop old cellphones, e-bike batteries, vacuum cleaner batteries, etc.
Redwood already has a partnership with Audi and Volkswagen. The battery company will recycle end-of-life batteries from the EVs made by the two brands. It has a similar arrangement with Toyota.
