There are many types of batteries from household to vehicle and toxic to non-toxic. Vehicle batteries should be disposed of through an automotive store. All household batteries can be recycled at our household hazardous waste drop off location, Haz Bin, at 7501 Grade Lane. Some hardware stores and battery stores will also accept batteries for recycling. (There is usually a fee for recycling alkaline household batteries at retail stores.) Alkaline batteries are non-toxic and environmentally safe for household garbage collection.
