RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES MUST BE RECYCLED THROUGH SPECIAL TAKE-BACK PROGRAMS
Batteries are split into two categories: rechargeable and single-use. Rechargeable batteries must always be brought to a special take back program - if thrown out or put into your recycling bin, they can cause fires putting our Sanitation Team at risk. Information on single-use batteries is listed below. The rechargeable battery drop-off program is for Troy residents only.
