Managing Batteries:

DO NOT throw batteries in your recycling cart with other recyclables. They pose a fire hazard and cause fires at recycling facilities. Take batteries to Cohen or Batteries + Bulbs - fees may apply.  Call ahead for information.

1.Safely prep batteries: 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 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.
