How to recycle

Alkaline Batteries

In garbage

Non-rechargeable, household alkaline batteries (such as AAA, AA, C, D, or 9-volt) can go in the garbage.

Household hazardous waste facility

Bring alkaline batteries and rechargeable batteries to a household hazardous waste facility, where the materials in the batteries will be reclaimed and recycled. No fee.

Decrease waste: Choose reusable items or donate to thrift stores.
