Rechargeable Batteries

Click on the tabs below for reuse, recycling or safe disposal options.

Rechargeable batteries are most often found in cell phones, laptop computers and other electronic devices. The most common types are lithium ion and nickel metal hydride. You should always dispose of rechargeable batteries with hazardous waste.

Rechargeable batteries can be reused many times over and can be recycled when no longer rechargeable. While rechargeable batteries may cost a little more upfront, the long-term savings and environmental benefits quickly make up for the initial cost. Although they are better for the environment they still contain hazardous materials and should be disposed of properly.

The long-term savings and the environmental benefits quickly make up for the cost of rechargeable batteries.

When rechargeable batteries do burn out, bring them to a hazardous waste depot.
