Battery Recycling FAQ's

Why is binning batteries dangerous?

Throwing used batteries away in general waste
and recycling bins is a serious fire hazard.

Any battery that holds a charge can spark and
cause a fire. Lithium batteries are particularly
dangerous. If crushed inside a collection truck
they can self-ignite and cause explosive fires.

Are button batteries more dangerous than normal ones?

Button batteries are a particular fire risk
because they have a large battery terminal that
can easily spark. They can also cause internal
burns if swallowed by small children and pets.
