Battery, Lithium-Ion

Lithium Ion batteries can be disposed of at the following drop-off locations. All Batteries must be taped on the ends with clear tape before being dropped off at these locations for the safety of staff and visitors. Contact location for details of what can and cannot be accepted.

Lithium Ion batteries should NEVER be included in curbside recycling or trash, as they can be highly flammable if not handled safely. These batteries have caused multiple fires at recycling facilities in recent years.

No matter whether a battery is rechargeable or not, it is safest to dispose of it as household hazardous waste.
