Recycle your batteries at the library! Throughout the month of March, the Library’s Off the Grid team will take your used batteries to a recycling center. Off-the-Grid is made up of a library staff members who find ways to save energy, reduce waste, and have fun doing it.
Many batteries contain heavy metals, toxins and other hazardous materials to the environment. Improper disposal of batteries leads to soil contamination and water pollution. Starting March 1, place your used batteries in the battery recycling depository in the foyer of the library by the entrance. The batteries will be transported to a recycling center where they will be broken apart into their various components and disposed of properly. All batteries are accepted, except car batteries.
