Wondering what you should do with your dead batteries?
Storing old batteries can be harmful for your health and a fire hazard for your home. Throwing them in the garbage is an even worse option, as the heavy metals found in the batteries may leak from the landfills into our precious water sources.
Sometimes making the trip to the landfill's hazardous waste collection site for a handful of batteries can be impractical.
CCI's environmental club, Earth Link, has a solution for you! From April 14th to the 25th Earth Link will be collecting old batteries at lunch. Just bring in any type of used battery and we will properly dispose of them for you.
