Recycling Non-rechargeable Batteries – Not a Problem!

7 08 2008

Doesn’t it feel strange, holding a handful of heavy batteries and then casually tossing them in the trash? Throwing away non-rechargeable batteries is not illegal, but when in a landfill, most batteries begin to leak, causing lead contamination to our groundwater.

Recycling these batteries is not a difficult task in the least, and it is helps the environment out a lot. All you have to do is mosey on over to the nearest Staples or Best Buy [a reader checked with Best Buy and they no longer accept batteries – but Staples still does](find the location nearest you here),  and ask them if they can recycle your non-rechargeable batteries. Yup, it’s that easy! All this commotion over how to get rid of these useless burdens is really unneeded, seeing as it is so simple and easy.

FYI, Radio Shack appears only to accept rechargeable batteries, not non-rechargeable. In Park Slope, go to 3R Living, on 296 5th Ave, near Garfield.
