Where to recycle electronics ?
Two reasons NOT to include batteries or electronics in recycling:
- Batteries can cause fires in recycling facilities. When compacted by recycling collection vehicles and sorting equipment, they can spark and cause a fire, putting workers and all recyclables at risk.
- Like Styrofoam™, Clothing, and Food & Yard Waste, there is nowhere we can recycle batteries and electronics when placed in blue carts.
