Rechargeable Batteries

Regular Household Batteries 
Common household alkaline batteries, such as AA and D, are safe to dispose of in your regular garbage. The Federal Battery Act of 1996 prohibited the use of mercury in household batteries, resulting in an alkaline battery that is no longer considered toxic by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Why Recycle Electronics?

  • You'll help decrease the amount of toxins such as lead, mercury and cadmium that enter the environment.
  • Valuable natural resources such as gold, copper and nickel are recovered in the e-cycling process and returned to market in new products.
  • It takes less energy to recover and recycle natural resources than to mine them from the earth, reducing the use of fossil fuels and lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
