What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Lithium-ion batteries

Lithium-ion batteries, which are commonly found in remote control toys, calculators, etc., are accepted at the Drop-Off Station as recycling and at Washtenaw County's Home Toxics disposal site. At the Recovery Yard, they are accepted as trash.


Recycle Right!

Do not put any batteries in curbside recycling bins.


Live Zero Waste!

Lithium-ion batteries are rechargeable.


Other Places These are Accepted:

  1. Staples accepts batteries for recycling at their stores
  2. Dell accepts batteries for drop-off recycling at some of their stores, click the link to find a location near you
  3. Use Energizer's handy locator to find out where else you can take your batteries to be recycled

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.
