Proper Battery Disposal

Disposing of Household Dry Cell Alkaline Batteries
Alkaline batteries can be safely disposed of with normal household waste.
Alkaline batteries are composed primarily of common metals - steel, zinc and manganese.
While some communities offer recycling or collection of alkaline batteries a proven
cost-effective and environmentally safe recycing process is not yet widely available.

Do NOT dispose of large amounts of alkaline batteries in a group. Used batteries are often not
completely 'dead' and bringing these batteries in contact with one another could create a safety risk.

Never dispose of batteries in a fire, because they could explode.

Recycling of Other Batteries
Rechargeable, lithium and lead acid batteries have chemicals in them that can pose
a health or environement risk and should be recycled.

Rechargeable Batteries - Several business in our area (see above list) accept recharable batteries for recycling found in everyday household items such as cameras, cell phones, laptops and power tools. Never dispose of batteries in a fire, because they could explode.
Lithium and other non-alkanling household Batteries - These batteries can be taken to one of the North Central Ohio Solid Waste Disticts Household Hazardous Waste Collection Locations. A fee of $1.00 per pound will be charged for these batteries. See our Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Page.
Lead Acid Batteries(LAB) - Lead Acid Batteries include auto batteries and should always be recycled. These LAB should always be handled and transported with caution due to the chemicals contained in them. Many locations in our area accept these batteries for recycling. See our LAB Battery Disposal Page.
