What should I do with batteries?
Alkaline batteries, used mostly in toys and flashlights, can be thrown away with your regular trash.
Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Ion (Li-ion) and Small Sealed Lead (Pb) can be recycled. Drop off locations include Radio Shack and Wal-Mart. You may also bring your old rechargeable batteries to our office.
Lead Acid, (automotive, motorcycle, etc.) should be taken to any store that sells lead acid batteries. Lohr's Garage, 1869 North Atherton, will also accept used automotive batteries.
If you are purchasing a new lead acid battery, most places give a discount off the purchase of the new battery when you bring the old one in.
