Batteries

Your business must recycle or safely dispose of rechargeable, auto, or other hazardous batteries; they can’t be discarded in the regular garbage or recycling. Except in very large quantities, alkaline batteries can be discarded with regular garbage.

Call2Recycle collects and recycles batteries at no cost. Here is a list of additional services that offer battery collection, prepaid battery mail-back service, and battery alternatives; check the websites for details.
