Pacific Sun: Recycling Your Dead Batteries
Did you know that household batteries (all types, from the AAA Alkalines in your TV remote to your watch battery) are considered household hazardous waste?
It’s important for the health and safety of our community that we recycle batteries properly. The Pacific Sun has posted an in-depth article about battery recycling, the importance of keeping this hazardous waste out our waste streams, and how you can find local drop off locations.
If you have batteries to recycle, you can bring them to the Marin Household Hazardous Waste Facility in San Rafael open for Marin County residents (except Novato residents) Tues – Sat 8:00am- 3:30pm.
The Marin Household Hazardous waste facility accepts the following household battery types:
• Alkaline (AAA, AA, C, D)
• Carbon Zinc
• Lithium (coin, button, AA, and nine-volt )
• Rechargeable (Nickel-Cadmium)
• Silver Oxide (button cells)
• Zinc Air (button cells)
