In addition to this policy, ABM operates a battery recycling programme as a part of its commitment to help protect the environment, and also to reduce the share of the unorganized market. As the lead used in our batteries is recyclable, not only is this module environmentally friendly, but it also makes sense in terms of being economical. Users of EXIDE batteries are now allowed to trade them in once they are used, to enjoy a discount on their new purchase. This buying back of old batteries has proved to be a successful programme managed by ABM.
