Battery Disposal/Recycling

  • Alkaline batteries:  Non-rechargeable batteries from household appliances and electronics, such as AA, AAA, C and D batteries, may be safely disposed of in the regular rubbish.
  • Lead-acid batteries:  Vehicle batteries are considered Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and  therefore may be disposed of through the HHW round-ups.  The City accepts HHW items on the last Friday of every month, during the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  Lead-acid batteries are also accepted at most automotive stores.
  • Rechargeable batteries:  Cell phone, power tool, cordless phone, and lap top computer batteries are not considered haszardous but are recyclable.  Rechargeable batteries may be dropped off at the Service Department.

Ink Cartridge Recycling
