Battery Disposal

4/3/2009

Batteries are also considered a hazardous waste, but they CANNOT be placed in recycling or trash. What do I do with them??? It’s easy, just keep a zip lock bag near your penny jar at home and turn them in at no cost to the numerous collection locations listed below.

1. Some retailers in your city have household battery drop-offs (Interstate All Battery Center)

2. The Household Toxics Facility is open Thursday through Saturday each week. The Facility is located at the Sonoma County Central Disposal Site at 500 Mecham Road in Petaluma. They are open from 7:30 am 2:30 pm. No appointment is necessaryfor residents. For business drop off information call 795-2025 or toll-free 1-877-747-1870.

3. Each week there is a Community Toxics Collection event in a different city in Sonoma County. Please call 795-2025 or toll-free 1-877-747-1870 to make an appointment.
