NOTE:   This website does not cover the recycling process for lead-acid starter batteries (12 Volts). These batteries have established collection and recycling processes.


GM hybrid, Electric, and Electrified vehicles contain an intermediate voltage (30<IV<60 volts DC) or high voltage (HV> 60 volts DC) battery pack.  Battery packs are based on either  Nickel Metal Hydride or Lithium ion cells. These battery packs can be recycled.

Comply with all federal, state/provincial, and local laws and regulations relating to the management of IV/HV batteries generated at your facility.  In certain countries, state and/or local laws can be more stringent than federal or national regulations
