Battery Recycling Matters

Batteries don’t last forever. Batteries need recycling because single-use and rechargeable batteries contain harmful chemicals such as lead, mercury, nickel and cadmium. Improperly disposed of batteries can contaminate our environment. While they are not as easily broken as lamps, most of the world’s consumer batteries end up in landfills or in our oceans. Over time they leach chemicals into the soil and water and this contaminates the environment. At this moment, there are billions of dead batteries in our landfills and oceans.
