Battery Recycling and Proper Disposal

Battery Recycling and Proper Disposal 

Free battery and cell phone recycling is available at all transfer stations within Franklin County Solid Waste District. Hand batteries and cell phones to the transfer station attendant for separate processing; never place in recycling dumpsters!

There are many different types of batteries and some contain mercury and other heavy metals. Batteries can release mercury, cadmium or other heavy metals into the air and water, ultimately entering the food chain and posing health threats to people and the environment. Please click ( read more) for disposal instructions for specific battery types.
