Dropped a Marine battery and busted the bottom corner off it. I then thru it in a buckett and cleaned up the mess as quick as I can. I used baking soda to neutralize the acid and washed out the driveway. Question is it safe to remove the lead ?? And how much lead is in a battery? It still feels very heavy. Im sure someone out there has investigated this. I dont want to just throw away lead. I also filled the buckett with water and a box af baking soda.
