Don’t Trash Rechargeable Batteries

Did you know that rechargeable batteries are not accepted in home garbage or recycling?

Rechargeable batteries are considered environmentally preferable because they can be reused and reduce waste, but they contain toxic materials such as lead and cadmium, which should be kept out of landfills.

It’s easy and free to recycle rechargeable batteries from your cordless electronic products. Visit the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation at www.rbrc.org.

The site will help you find a recycling location in your neighborhood. Just enter your zip code.

They also have fun games on their site. Try Battery Tetris.
