Battery Disposal – Boston

Battery disposal requires special care because of the different kinds of toxins batteries contain. Recycle your batteries through Boston's Household Hazardous Waste recycling program. Most household batteries including alkaline, rechargeable, lithium (typically found in cameras) and button type (found in watches or other small electronic devices), are accepted by this program. Wet cell batteries, like car batteries, are not accepted for recycling through this program.
