About Yard

Batteries have become an ever-present necessity in today's mobile world. Powering our cell phones, laptops, power tools, and countless other portable devices used around our home and work-place. If its electronic and portable, a battery is responsible for providing the energy needed to keep that device operating.In fact, advances in the energy capacity and expected life of batteries is leading to a transformation of the automotive industry, with hybrid and electric vehicles gaining broad market acceptance worldwide. For that reason, it is paramount to develop solutions to handle these large-format batteries that will soon be reaching their end-of-life.Thankfully, KBI has the ability to manage all types of batteries, from household batteries small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, to the large-format batteries weighing several hundred pounds each.

Kinsbursky Brothers Inc. (KBI) is a diverse and multi-faceted environmental company that specializes in the recovery of valuable metals from end-of-life batteries and catalytic converters.In addition, KBI launched its new xEV Power Solutions division in 2015, with the goal to develop technologies to extend and reutilize hybrid and electric vehicle (xEV) batteries.KBI recognizes the importance of managing our client's materials in a safe, efficient and environmentally responsible manner. It is this commitment that sets KBI apart from the competition.KBI is an ISO 14001 Environmental Standard Certified Part B RCRA permitted facility.

  • Defining responsibility and assigning accountability
  • Employee safety and environmental compliance training.
  • Assessing environmental risk.
  • Assessing workplace safety.
  • Routinely checking compliance
  • Conducting system assessments.
  • Corrective actions.
  • Preventing injury and illness in the workplace.
  • Preventing pollution. 

BATTERY RECYCLING

Batteries have become an ever-present necessity in today's mobile world. Powering our cell phones, laptops, power tools, and countless other portable devices used around our home and work-place. If its electronic and portable, a battery is responsible for providing the energy needed to keep that device operating.In fact, advances in the energy capacity and expected life of batteries is leading to a transformation of the automotive industry, with hybrid and electric vehicles gaining broad market acceptance worldwide. For that reason, it is paramount to develop solutions to handle these large-format batteries that will soon be reaching their end-of-life.Thankfully, KBI has the ability to manage all types of batteries, from household batteries small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, to the large-format batteries weighing several hundred pounds each.

Why Recycle your Batteries with KBI

  •  ​KBI can accept and manage all major consumer battery types currently in the stream of commerce, including Alkaline, Nickel Cadmium (NiCd), Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH), Lithium Ion (Li-Ion), Lithium Metal, and Lead Acid.
  • Forklifts, cell phone towers and power backup systems use Lead Acid batteries that can weigh in excess of 1,000 lbs. KBI has the processes and controls necessary to safely and responsibly recycle these large-format batteries, while ensuring our customers get the most value for their end of life products.
  • A revolution in transportation is underway and KBI has positioned itself as a leader in the field of managing and recycling large-format NiMH and Li-Ion batteries from hybrids and electric vehicles. 
  • KBI has been approved and permitted by the U.S. EPA to store and recycle Hazardous Waste batteries, and has been certified under the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. Further, KBI provides comprehensive environmental insurance to ensure it fully protects its customers from any potential environmental liability.

CATALYTIC CONVERTER RECYCLING

Catalytic Converters are used by almost every vehicle on the road today. First introduced in the mid-70s, Catalytic Converters were mandated as an emission control device to greatly reduce the toxic constituents produced by a vehicles exhaust system.​This reduction occurs through the catalyzing of toxic constituents with Platinum Group Metals (PGMs), such as Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium. KBI has the ability to capture the value of these PGMs.KBI has attained a great reputation in the Scrap Catalytic Converter recovery industry by always providing its customers with the utmost in quality service, convenient drop-off or pick-up options, and the most competitive prices on the West Coast.

Why Sell us your Catalytic Converters

  • Not all converters are created equal. The value of a converter is dependent on the amount of Platinum Group Metals it contains. Thankfully, KBI maintains a detailed database of Catalytic Converters to ensure your materials are properly identified and assigned the highest value possible.
  • Currently one of the largest recyclers of Catalytic Converters in Southern California, KBI can provide comprehensive pickup and delivery services for those with catalytic converters. In addition, KBI employs sales agents willing to travel throughout the country to purchase converters and can even conduct business with international collectors of catalytic converters.
  • KBI has specialized in the recovery and recycling of Platinum Group Metals from Catalytic Converters for over 35 years. This experience means KBI has the ability to quickly evaluate your converters and get you the best price for your materials.
  • KBI maintains stringent programs to ensure it stays in compliance with all state and federal environmental and worker safety laws. Further, KBI maintains broad insurance coverage, including general liability, workers compensation, and environmental liability. 

INDUSTRIAL LEAD ACID BATTERIES

Kinsbursky Brothers specializes in the processing of industrial Lead Acid batteries, which are used in many applications including power backup, power regulation for cell phone towers and data centers, and motive power for electronic lift trucks.Lead Acid batteries are much heavier than their nickel or lithium counterparts, potentially weighing in excess of 1,000 lbs. However, their relatively inexpensive cost when compared to other types of batteries, makes them ideal for stationary applications where battery weight is not critical. In addition, Lead Acid batteries not only power electronic lift trucks, but provide a needed counterweight when moving heavy inventory items.
Lead Acid batteries are composed of two highly hazardous components: lead and sulfuric acid. For that reason, they are heavily regulated by the competent authorities including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT). KBI has been issued a permit by the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC), which authorizes KBI to treat the hazardous components of lead acid batteries; up to 12 million lbs. per month.As one of the largest processors of lead acid batteries on the west coast, KBI can be trusted to handle your batteries in a safe and environmentally conscious manner. KBI maintains detailed tracking of all materials it receives and can provide Certificates of Recycling to those in need of proof that their hazardous waste has been legally and responsibly managed.

xEV Strategies

Large-format batteries from hybrid and electric vehicles, and from stationary grid applications, require specialized services that go above and beyond what is required for the typical consumer battery. Large-format batteries are complex and can be dangerous if handled improperly, which is why experts knowledgeable in all areas of battery management are crucial to ensuring proper safety and regulatory guidance.It is for this reason, that in 2015, Kinsbursky Brothers launched its xEV Strategies division. The purpose of this division is to provide dedicated services to the automobile manufacturing industry, as well as any other companies in the business of manufacturing, selling, or maintaining large-format batteries.Services include refurbishment and rejuvenation of failing batteries, logistical movement of batteries from one location to another, controlled storage of batteries to ensure expected life is maintained, and various field services as needed.
