Are Bosch eBike batteries recycled?
Batteries must be properly disposed when they reach end of life. Materials recovered from recycled batteries, such as aluminum, copper, cobalt and nickel, are used in the manufacturing of new products. Bosch urges eBike riders to take batteries to the nearest approved collection site, a qualified dealer for recycling or local hazardous waste disposal facility.
If a rechargeable battery is defect: Warning: Direct contact with battery electrolyte may cause skin irritation.
Damaged or defective eBike batteries should be taken to the nearest approved collection site, a qualified dealer or local hazardous waste disposal facility for safe disposal. When not in use, damaged or defective batteries are best stored in a safe, outdoor location with their connection contacts taped.
