How it works: Fill this bag with batteries from the list below, and when it's full set it out with your compost bin to be collected for free. If you're not a CompostNow Home Service Member, you can schedule your pick-up using this link.

Includes:
Alkaline, button, carbon zinc, coin cell batteries, lithium-ion (Li-Ion), lithium primary, nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd), nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH), nickel-zinc (Ni-Zn).

Not Included: Car or wet-cell batteries, batteries larger than 300Wh or that weigh more than 11lbs, swollen, recalled, damaged, cracked, or corroded batteries.

Tip: Avoid placing The Battery Bag in direct sunlight on collection day.

Instructions: Tape battery terminals with non-conductive tape (clear packaging tape, electrical tape, duct tape) and store in a cool, dry area before collection. This is important for the safety of our team and it helps prevent fires. 

Here is an example of clear packing tape that we recommend for taping battery terminals. Here is a how-to video for taping battery terminals.

Where Does It Go: Call2Recycle to various vendors based on battery type.
