Batteries (Single Use)

Batteries (Single Use)!

Illegal in Garbage & Drains

Batteries should never go in the trash. They contain toxic and corrosive metals and are considered hazardous waste.

Special Directions

FREE CURBSIDE COLLECTION:

The Town of Truckee offers a free battery recycling program through curbside collection (see instructions provided below):

Batteries can start fires when their terminals are allowed to touch, so put electrical tape on each battery terminal. Next, place batteries into a Ziploc bag, and then stack these bags on top of your trash can, not your recycling. These bags will be collected free of charge.


LOCAL BATTERY DROP-OFF LOCATIONS:

Residents may also recycle common household batteries such as AA, AAA, C cells, D cells, button batteries and rechargeable FREE at any of the recycling drop-off locations (see below):
