Don’t Throw Away Your Lithium Batteries

Waste Management logoA reminder from Waste Management:

Lithium-ion batteries are considered hazardous waste and should never go in your curbside garbage or recycling cart. These batteries are often found in rechargeable electronics like phones, laptops, and electric toothbrushes. When punctured, damaged or exposed to high temperatures, they can cause fires and even explosions. This is a big risk when they end up in Waste Management recycling or garbage trucks! You can find drop-off locations by searching for rechargeable batteries at 1800recycle.wa.gov.
