Did you know Americans purchase nearly 3 billion batteries (dry-cell) every year? On average, each person in the U.S. disposes of 8 batteries every year.
In California, all batteries intended for disposal must be recycled—taken to a hazardous waste disposal facility or an authorized recycling facility. Do you know where your local hazardous waste disposal facility is? You don’t need to know. Bring your batteries to the library!
The library collects dry-cell batteries for recycling. Dry-cell batteries include batteries for flashlights, watches, remote controls, and laptop computers.
The battery recycling box is located on the shelf behind the reference desk on the second floor of the library. Bring the 8 batteries you’ll recycle this year!
