While some community shops offer battery recycling, Antons Recycling will actually give you cash in return for them. There are several reasons you should always recycle your lead-based batteries:

  • The lead and acid inside each battery is highly toxic when left to decompose
  • They can be reconditioned or recycled into new products
  • Recycling them produces less carbon emissions than mining raw lead ore to manufacture new batteries

Electric Motors

You’d be surprised at just how many things in your home use electric motors, and most of these are thrown out when they break down. We can give these motors a new life and stop them from ending up in landfill. These are just a few everyday items that contain electric motors:

  • Kitchen appliances
  • Refrigerators
  • Industrial vacuum cleaners
  • Fans
  • Starter motors
  • Automatic garage doors


Although home heating radiators are usually made from cast iron, car radiators contain good amounts of recyclable aluminium. Curbside pick-ups and most regular recycling tips don’t accept radiators. That makes Antons Recycling is your best bet in Alice Springs to sell this part.

If you are removing your radiator yourself, make sure to drain the coolant and dispose of it safely. This is more convenient for our dealers and you will often get a higher price by selling the radiator as a clean sheet of aluminium.

Catalytic Converters

Most commonly found applied to exhaust systems on vehicles, catalytic converters contain trace amounts of precious platinum. It’s highly important to recycle these, as platinum mining is extremely hazardous to the environment.

Using a complicated and dangerous chemical process—which you should definitely not try at home—recyclers can extract the mineral so it can be reused. Call Antons Recycling if you need advice on locating or removing your vehicle’s catalytic converter.
