Bring all types of spent batteries to your closest NHC Library for recycling, starting this week! New battery recycling containers are in place, courtesy of the Environmental Management department.
Batteries will be taken to NHC’s Household Hazardous Waste facility to be sorted and shipped to approved recyclers.
Batteries contain corrosive chemicals and heavy metals that can contaminate groundwater, so please don’t toss used batteries in trash that’s headed to the landfill!
To help protect local air and water quality, research your options for recycling and safely disposing of hazardous wastes at Environmental Management’s website or by calling 910-798-4400.
