hard to recycle drive: batteries

Back by popular demand, the Earth Care team is hosting another battery recycling drive April 21 and 28.  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 on Sunday, April 21 through Sunday April 28.  To donate, you must log your name and address and what you are bringing for recycling on the sheets provided at the boxes.
