This facility features a range of advanced and proven environmental control technology. It enables us to continue to responsibly recycle our customers' used batteries, while maintaining a reliable source of raw material to support battery production.
The facility features world-class environmental controls, and operates well within federal, state and local regulations including the U.S. EPA’s stringent standards for ambient air.
The Florence Recycling Center is part of the Johnson Controls global network that ensures hundreds of millions of batteries are properly recycled every year and avoid being disposed of in landfills. In fact, our Florence recycling system recycles 1,600 batteries every hour, enabling us to turn these materials into the raw materials that make new batteries while helping to protect natural resources.

Working with Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC)
DHEC and Johnson Controls operate air samplers at three locations around the perimeter of the recycling facility to regularly collect particulate samples. The concentrations of lead in the ambient air are determined by using the Federal Reference Method for collection and analysis of the air samples. The DHEC samples are collected by the department and analyzed at a certified government laboratory.
