AAA Car Batteries: They Help Make the World Go Round


AAA takes great pride in our long-standing history of environmental protection and commitment to sustainability practices. Our AAA Mobile Battery Service was designed with this commitment in mind. AAA-branded batteries are made using recycled lead and plastic, and when we come to you to install a new car battery, we recycle your old one as part of our service – taking it to an EPA-approved recycling center.

Nearly 100% Recycling Rates

Our battery recycling programs are designed to maximize collection rates of used automotive batteries in every market we serve. We proudly recycle over 99% of each used battery we collect. What’s even better? Each new lead car battery that is stalled in your vehicle is comprised of more than 80% recycled material*!

As a direct result of battery replacement and recycling services provided by AAA throughout the United States, we have helped to:

  • Provide a product that is one of the top five most sustainable consumer products*
  • Reclaim lead, plastic, and acid for reuse in the production of new batteries
  • Assist AAA Members throughout the United States to recycle their old batteries
