Alkaline batteries are the AA, AAA, 9 volts, and D cells that power remote controls, clocks, flashlights, smoke detectors, and wireless consumer devices. Even when the cells no longer run devices, the batteries are still capable of producing electricity. They can be hazardous if discarded improperly. Follow these precautions before throwing them out:
We at Recycle My Battery always encourage you to drop them at your state hazardous waste disposal facility. If any kids want to lead the effort locally at their school, we can help them provide battery bins with the help of Call2Recycle.
