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.
