Dispose of Alkaline Batteries in the Trash Properly!

Quick reminder about alkaline batteries: they should be tossed in the trash, not the recycling bin.

Why?: Unlike rechargeable batteries, alkaline batteries are not considered hazardous, so they can safely go in the regular trash. Don’t worry, alkaline batteries are not harmful when disposed of properly in the trash. Remember, responsible disposal helps keep our environment clean and safe. Let’s do our part to reduce waste and recycle right!  #DisposeResponsibly #AlkalineBatteries #TrashTalk

Protect the Environment: Recycling batteries prevents harmful chemicals from leaching into the soil and water, keeping our environment clean and safe.

Resource Conservation: Valuable materials in batteries, like lithium and nickel, can be reused, reducing the need for mining and resource extraction.

Safety First: Improperly disposed batteries can pose fire and health hazards. Recycling ensures they are handled safely. Let’s all do our part to keep Canton green and sustainable!

Recycle your batteries responsibly, and spread the word to your friends and family. Together, we can make a positive impact on our community and the planet.  #RecycleBatteries #CantonRecycleCenter #SustainableLiving
