How do I recycle or properly dispose of...

For Rechargeable Batteries - Click here

For Automotive Batteries - Click here

Many electronics that we enjoy in our daily lives, from the tv remote control to cell phones, run on batteries.  More than 3 billion batteries are sold in the US each year.  All batteries are considered hazardous waste in California when they are discarded.  This includes AAA, AA, C, D, button cell, 9 Volt, lithium, rechargeable and all other batteries.  Batteries are considered hazardous because of the heavy metals and toxic and/or corrosive materials that they contain.  All batteries should be recycled or taken to the household hazardous waste facility or a recycling location for proper disposal.

There is NO COST for San Joaquin County residents to recycle or properly dispose of these materials at San Joaquin County's Household Hazardous Waste Facility. 

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THESE ITEMS IN THE GARBAGE!
