That's good news as lithium is less common than aluminum, iron, titanium, which are normally all recycled but less common than elements like copper, lead and all your other common industrial metals used in alloying steel and battery construction which are generally also all recycled.
If we ever want to see more than 5 to 10% of cars on the road turn electric battery recycling for the lithium will need to go main stream.
