The Depot takes all types of batteries.

  • Batteries labeled “alkaline” or AA, AAA, C or D are not considered hazardous–they can be thrown into your regular trash bin. All other batteries (with labels such as “rechargeable,” “lithium,” “Ni-CD,” etc.) are hazardous and you should bring them to the Depot for recycling.
  • Please do not put items such as trash, light bulbs, fuses, or other random objects in the same container as your batteries. This can injure Depot staff, as we must sort batteries by hand.
  • If any batteries are seriously damaged, put them in a separate container and call it to our attention when you drop off your batteries at the Depot.
