Battery Disposal

Incorrect Battery Disposal Can Cause Fires

Common household items seem harmless, however, the batteries in them pose risks when disposed into regular garbage or recycling containers because of their highly flammable nature.

  • Remove the batteries

    Check the electronic devices you need to dispose of. If possible, remove the batteries. If not, bring the whole device to the drop off location.
  • Store batteries in a safe place

    Store batteries in non-metallic containers (plastic, cardboard, or glass) that do not conduct electricity if there is a spark.
  • Find your local drop off

    Find a local electronic disposal store, or find a drop off location near you.

What is Recycling & Why You Should Recycle

Recycling involves collecting, processing, and making certain materials reusable. While not all materials are recyclable, the majority can be. Trash and waste contribute to the generation of toxic chemicals and greenhouse gases in landfill sites. Recycling plays a crucial role in reducing overall pollution caused by waste and landfills, contributing to a healthier environment.

Recycling Process

What happens to my recycling?

Once recyclable materials are sorted, they are transported to various markets for processing into new raw materials. Common items like plastic bottles and papers often undergo recycling processes that return them to their original state or product, effectively closing the 'life cycle' of these materials. This allows for continuous recycling and reuse. Additionally, more complex materials are recycled to create entirely new products, spanning from furniture to clothing.
