Battery, Alkaline

Alkaline batteries can be thrown way in the trash or recycled. Many local retail stores and the drop-off locations listed below also accept alkaline batteries free of cost. Contact specific location for details.

Since the late 1990s, alkaline batteries have no longer been manufactured using heavy metals, meaning they can be thrown away in the trash, although recycling is preferable. All other types of batteries are manufactured with heavy metals and must be recycled.
