Batteries (Single-Use/Non-Rechargeable)

(Last Updated: 6/21/2019)

Household batteries, including alkaline, button, and rechargeable, are accepted for recycling at the locations below.

Although you can recycle alkaline batteries at a drop-off site, they are also safe to put in the garbage.

If you cannot tell what type of battery you have or are unsure, please take it to a recycling site.

Button and rechargeable batteries are not accepted in the garbage because they can explode when crushed. See additional rechargeable battery recycling sites.
