Battery Recycling

Don't throw out used batteries in the trash; recycle them! Did you know that batteries contain potentially hazardous elements and metals such as zinc, nickel-cadmium, nickel metal hydride, and lithium that cause unnecessary heavy metal contamination to the planet?

172 S. Circle Ave.
