Batteries

Drop Off Locations

Many batteries contain heavy metals which can contaminate streams, rivers and the surrounding land.  Because of this potential enviromental impact, batteries should not be disposed of in the trash or in your recycling bins. Drop off your home-generated batteries (non-auto) at the following locations at no charge.

Auto Batteries and up to 10 gallons or 100 pounds of small batteries are accepted at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility located on Hawthorne Street. 

Incidental amounts may be disposed of at dedicated locations at the Hawthorne Street Transfer Station when dropping off solid waste.
