Batteries

About

Vehicle and household batteries contain toxic heavy metals and acids that can cause serious environmental problems when they are disposed of with regular garbage. Look for solar powered products, or use an AC/DC adapter to avoid the use of batteries. When you do need batteries, rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium batteries can be used many times and will save you money. Rechargeable batteries can also be recycled at participating battery and department stores when they are no longer rechargeable. The lead, sulfuric acid and plastic casings from vehicle batteries can be reprocessed by registered battery recyclers. Walmart accepts certain batteries for recycling purposes. Please call for details. Some local jewelers take back watch batteries for recycling, and some hearing aid clinics accept hearing aid batteries. Some Municipal offices have collection sites to drop off batteries for recycling. We re looking for information on who takes back batteries in our community. Please contact us if you have information.
