Batteries

Household Battery Drop-Off Locations:

All types of household batteries must be recycled - it's required by state law. Please separate battery types (Alkaline, NiCd, Automotive) for easier recycling, and tape the positive (+) terminal on your batteries before dropping off. BATTERIES: D, C, A, AA, & AAA don’t need to be taped – everything else, including rechargable batteries must have ends taped! We accept batteries free of charge at our Recycling Center. By law, cell phones and rechargeable batteries should be accepted anywhere they are sold.

Automotive battery drop off

Automobile batteries are also banned from the trash.  When you buy a new battery, the store where you purchased it is required to take your old battery for recycling.  Lead is separated from the other battery parts and is used to make new batteries.  Auto batteries are also accepted for recycling drop-off at these locations:
