Battery Collection and Recycling

Alkaline Batteries

According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, single-use alkaline batteries have little recycling value and may be safely thrown in the trash. Interested to learn more? Click here to learn more from WI DNRClick here to learn more from the EPA.

If you would prefer to keep alkaline batteries out of the landfill, you make take the batteries to the nearest Batteries + Bulbs or to Veolia in Port Washington. Both of these collection sites charge by the pound for battery collection.

If you use a large number of alkaline batteries, consider using rechargeable batteries.  If that is not an option,  anther option is to purchase a pre-paid battery collection kit from Call2Recycle.
