Proper disposal of rechargeable batteries keeps your family and pets safe, conserves our natural resources and protects our communities. If not disposed of properly, these batteries can spark and cause fires or explosions. They also may contain hazardous chemicals that can be harmful to your family and pets and can also contaminate land and waterways. Batteries may hold a residual charge even when they appear dead. When they come in contact with other batteries or metal, a spark or heat can occur, which can cause fire, explosions, property damage and physical injury. Lithium-ion batteries have been responsible for causing fires at Landfills and Recycling Centers. Rechargeable batteries can be dropped off at the Recycling Center Monday – Friday 7am – 4pm and Saturday 7am – Noon.
