Batteries do not belong in your trash or recycling receptacle. Lithium-ion batteries that typically power our electronic devices, or power tools, for example, can cause a fire or an explosion in a waste/recycling collection truck, landfill or even recycling when thrown in your trash or recycling cart. We are encouraging our customers to recycle all batteries at local battery or home department stores.
