What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Computer batteries

Computer/laptop batteries are accepted for recycling at the Drop-Off Station, if undamaged, and Washtenaw County's Home Toxics disposal site. A damaged battery is defined as bloated, leaking, corrosion on terminals, or dented.


Recycle Right!

Do not put batteries of any kind in your curbside recycling cart. Batteries are not accepted in curbside recycling as they can cause fires, damage equipment, and create unsafe conditions for our workers.


Choose Zero Waste!

Extend the life of your battery by taking preventive measures. Don't replace computer batteries until necessary.


Do any other places accept computer/laptop batteries?

Staples accepts batteries for recycling at in-store drop-off locations

While we do our best to stay updated on alternative reuse and recycling locations, we recommend that you call locations before taking your item(s) to confirm that they currently accept them.
