Battery recycling is a recycling activity that aims to reduce the number of batteries being disposed as municipal solid waste. Recycling is the environmentally preferable choice. If you can collect and recycle alkalines, you should. While they may no longer be considered hazardous waste, they still contain elements that can harm the environment, especially given the number of single-use batteries being disposed of each year.
The City’s Department of Public Works has been receiving increased inquiries regarding the proper disposal of household batteries. Because of this the department has placed containers to collect household batteries at City Hall by the Clerk’s Office, Outside the Lower Civic Center, and The Public Works Building. Just look for the bucket!
