Bloomfield Recycling Committee Releases Battery Recycling Information for Residents

recycle-batteries

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- In an effort to help residents understand the rules regarding battery recycling, the Bloomfield Recycling Committee is releasing the following tips:

  1. Regular household batteries, ie, alkaline batteries can be placed in with regular solid waste. These batteries are deemed non-hazardous and there is really no local market for the limited recycling of them. If a person really wants to recycle these batteries, there are a few, mail in services that allow for the batteries to be sent to them for recycling.
  2. For other batteries, rechargeable, watch, and lithium ion, these can be brought to the county household hazardous waste days. The next one is October 3 from 8:30am-4:30pm at 99 W Bradford Ave. in Cedar Grove. For more information visit ecuanj.com or call 973-792-9060. Residents may also go to www.call2recycle.org which is the website for a battery recycling organization that has information and a mail back store where you can purchase a kit to send back batteries of different types and in different conditions.
  3. For rechargeable batteries, stores such as Home Depot and Lowes will take them back at the front entrances. There is a special drop off location but you should check with the store prior to dropping off due to COVID-19.
  4. For lead acid batteries, these are recycled at locations that sell them. ie, typically auto repair stores, etc.

“In Bloomfield, we are striving to be as sustainable and environmentally conscious as we can be,” said Mayor Venezia. “I hope that these tips will allow residents to more easily understand how they can best recycle batteries in a way that will be both convenient and responsible.”
