BATTERY RECYCLING

Batteries cannot be collected curbside or at the drop-off sites as they are considered HHW. Improper disposal of batteries can result in fires and can put our collection crews, MRF workers, and even you at risk of injury. All types of batteries, including rechargeable, alkaline, lead-acid, lithium, and button cell are accepted at HHW Collection Events. Click here for upcoming events near you.

Automotive, marine, and other lead-acid batteries are also accepted by any automotive battery retailer.

LITHIUM SINGLE-USE AND BUTTON CELL BATTERIES

These batteries are labeled as Lithium (Li), not to be confused with rechargeable Lithium Ion (Li-Ion). They contain small amounts of toxic heavy metals and should be recycled via an HHW Collection Event or at a free battery drop-off site when possible.

RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES

Rechargeable batteries include Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd or Ni-Cad), Nickel Metal Oxy Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Ion (Li-Ion), and Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn). These types of batteries come in many sizes and forms, from AAA to D. They can be in cell phones, cameras, and laptops. As these batteries contain heavy metals such as nickel, cadmium, and lithium, they cannot be safely placed in municipal landfills.

ALKALINE BATTERIES

Alkaline batteries are non-rechargeable and are Dry Cell. While not the ideal option, used alkaline batteries can be placed in the trash to be landfilled. They no longer contain toxic materials such as mercury, as mercury was banned by federal law.

LEAD-ACID BATTERIES

Lead-acid batteries include automotive, marine, deep cycle, etc. and contain toxic substances such as lead and sulfuric acid which cannot be safely placed in municipal landfills. Once recycled, much of the content is reused in new batteries. Retailers are required to accept used lead-acid batteries when you purchase a new one.
