See the following tips for managing yours...

1.Safely prep the batteries. Two options: bag or tape. Bag each battery in its own clear plastic bag before placing it in a storage container. Tape the terminals with clear packing, non-conductive electrical or duct tape, keeping the label visible. Batteries that appear dead may contain a residual charge and can pose a fire hazard unless they are bagged or taped.   Aim to recycle batteries within six months of their end of use.

2 Store the batteries in a cool, dry place. Incidents can occur when batteries are exposed to inclement or excessively hot weather. Store them in a plastic container; avoid metal.

3. If you see a swollen or bulging battery, immediately put it in non-flammable material, such as sand or kitty litter, and store it in a cool, dry place. Do not throw it away.

DO NOT throw batteries in your recycling cart with other recyclables, like paper, plastic and glass. They pose a fire hazard and cause fires at recycling facilities. Bring batteries to Cohen with 2 Butler Co. locations.  Call to verify fees.  Hamilton - 513-863-3474 or Middletown - 513-425-6911.  Butler County accepts  batteries at the Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off.
