Batteries are easy to recycle but don’t belong in your recycling or waste containers, where they can start fires. You can recycle rechargeable batteries at any Home Depot, Lowes, Batteries+Bulbs, and Ace Hardware stores, among others. Find a location near you at call2recycle.org or batteriesplus.com.
Ask your community about single-use battery recycling options. If none are available, tape over the battery’s contacts before placing in your household trash, never your recycling container.
