Re: 4 reasons...WHAT TO DO WITH SPENT BATTERIES

It varies by jurisdiction. The city I work in just had a press release that they will no longer take alkaline batteries on their household waste collection days, instead telling residents to put them in with the regular trash.

In our recycling system, there is no mention of batteries. What is the proper disposal of Alkaline, and of Li-oN, They both say, "DISPOSE OF PROPERLY" and "KEEP OUT OF FIRE" but our city (311) number does not know, and Dept. of Sanitation can not be reached. I'm in New York (shouldn't matter) but what guidelines should we follow? I'M trying to follow the law. Does any one know? Would you be kind enough to tell me? Thank You Very Much. ...Joe Prete
