Battery Recycling

Look for this sign and containers in the store.

CCCSWA offers two ways to dispose of common household batteries. Residents can have batteries picked up twice a year through the curbside Reuse Day, or a resident can drop batteries off at one of our partner retail locations below.
 
For Reuse Day service, put your batteries in a sealable clear plastic bag and set them out during your twice-yearly Reuse Day. The batteries must be kept separate from your reuse items and must be clearly marked with the sticker sent with your Reuse and Cleanup Days brochure.
 
 
For drop off, go to any of the following local retailers that provide free household battery collection:
