This #NationalBatteryDay, pledge to properly dispose of batteries. Batteries NEVER go in the recycling bin, and some types can't go in the trash, either—they are a major cause of fires at sorting facilities. Check with your municipality for disposal options: Link in bio.

Some towns and cities collect batteries at drop-off locations, some retailers collect phone and computer batteries, and you can drop off old car batteries at most auto shops. Only single-use alkaline batteries can go in the trash.

Items that have batteries inside should also stay OUT of the recycling and trash. This can range from large electronic tools to small items like electric hand warmers! When in doubt, check the Recyclopedia: https://bit.ly/3wDe4Tl.
