hard to recycle drive: batteries

The Earth Care team would like to help you learn about recycling those harder to deal with household products.  To start us off, we are hosting a battery recycling drive in September.  We will NOT be collecting batteries until September, so start saving them at home!  The batteries will be going to Boulder County's Hazardous Materials Management Facility (HMMF).

They accept all alkaline, rechargeable and button cell batteries for recycling or disposal, including lead acid batteries (including auto batteries), lithium ion (Li-Ion), lithium primary, lithium polymer (Li-Po), nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd), and nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries. 

Terminal ends should be covered with tape on: 

  • lithium and lithium ion batteries; 
  • all 9-volt batteries or batteries over 9-volts;
  • and electronics batteries. 

We are not accepting damaged batteries.  You may individually bag any damaged batteries and take them to Hazardous Materials Management Facility at 1901c 63rd St., Boulder for safe disposal.

We will have collection boxes set up in Fellowship Hall and the front office starting Tuesday, Sep 5 through Sunday Sep 17.  To donate, you must log your name and address and what you are bringing for recycling on the sheets provided at the boxes.  Earth Care team members will be in Fellowship Hall Sundays, Sep 10 & 17 to answer any questions that you may have.
