Household alkaline and non-rechargeable batteries may be disposed of with regular household and commercial trash. Examples of these batteries are AAA, AA, A, C, D and 9 volt.
The exceptions to this ruling are the "small button batteries" used in many of the smaller electronic devices such as watches, calculators and specialty toys and games and rechargeable batteries. The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) an industry sponsored group, will continue to accept rechargeable batteries in special collection boxes provided at a number of retail outlets; visit www.rbrc.org for a list of these locations.
