Batteries

Trying to get rid of old dead or used batteries?

 

If disposed of improperly, batteries can release lead, mercury, and several other toxic metals into the environment. By diverting batteries from the waste stream we keep them from polluting our environment and commercial recyclers can safely recover the metals for re-use. Below is a list of drop-off locations.
