How do I get rid of batteries?
  • Household batteries may be placed in your normal trash due to the fact that mercury levels have been significantly reduced and fall with Department of Environmental Protection standards.
  • Rechargeable batteries can be dropped off at one of the Rechargeable Battery Drop Off Locations.
  • Car batteries can be dropped off at MCIA's Household Hazardous Waste and Used Electronics Collection Event held on March 26, June 4 and September 10, June 2 from 8 am to 2 pm at John T. Dempster Fire School.
  • Car batteries can also be taken to the Ecological Facility.
