Used lead-acid batteries are classified as hazardous waste under the Hazardous Waste Act 1989 and should not be disposed of with the regular garbage. Each lead-acid battery contains about 2-3 litres of sulfuric acid, as well as lead, both of which are toxic. Lead is a cumulative poison in our bodies and is also harmful to the environment, particularly fish, animals and plants.

What are ISS systems?
Vehicles fitted with Idle Start/Stop Systems (ISS) systems are often referred to as ‘mild’ or ‘micro’ hybrids. They have been developed by vehicle manufacturers to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions to satisfy global targets.
If you think the summer weather is easier on your car battery, think again.
While warmer temperatures help to increase battery capacity, making it easier to turn over the engine, they also cause an increase in the rate at which the battery deteriorates. When the temperature is warmer, the current conducting grids corrode faster, which can reduce the life of your battery.
