And I’m sure the groundskeeper got a carton out of it too ;)

Usually there are a few good batteries amongst a dead string.

For these, I like to recondition them with a cTek charger:

100Ah goes a long way when away from civilisation.

Yep, the youngster's school ran this as a fund-raiser last year. Drop off all your old car batteries to the groundskeeper and the school "disposed" of them and got some small coin for it.

Local metal recyclers usually buy them for around $0.25 - $0.30/kilogram
of Lead Acid Battery - you can earn some beer money too!
