How should I dispose of used batteries?
Alkaline batteries come in many sizes and are commonly referred to as disposable or single-use batteries (AA, AAA, C, etc). Prior to the early 1990’s, manufacturers added mercury and cadmium to alkaline batteries, making them unsafe for landfill disposal. The majority of today's alkaline batteries are non-hazardous and can be safely disposed with household trash. Older alkaline batteries should be brought to the HHW collection event.Battery disposal information
