What do I do with…?
Why is battery waste a problem? Batteries contain acidic components which when disposed of in a landfill can cause toxic leaching with the potential of contaminating groundwater.
Examples: alkaline, rechargeable, automotive, nickel, lithium, household
Use rechargeable instead of single-use disposable batteries.
Choose items with plug-in option instead of battery-operated.
Reconsider your dependence on electronic devices.
Rechargeable batteries can be reused over and over again.
