Unacceptable Materials: Batteries & Electronics


Batteries & Electronics
Never include batteries or electronics in your recycling cart, despite reference to recycling on these products.

These items are not recyclable in the blue cart program.

Where can I recycle batteries?

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.
