Businesses are under pressure to adopt better sustainability practices. Customers, as well as local, state, and federal regulators, expect businesses to act as stewards of the environment.

Battery recycling is a great place to start. Americans use almost 3 billion dry-cell batteries every year, yet only three percent are recycled.    Batteries contain hazardous heavy metals and other compounds that can pollute our water, soil and air if not recycled.

Using our Battery Recycling Kits to dispose of spent dry-cell batteries is an easy way to do something good for the environment, comply with regulations, and show customers that you care.

Additionally, participating in our battery-recycling program can help you meet LEED® certification standards and provide you with the Recycling Certificates needed to verify that your business has complied with local, state and federal regulations. 

How it Works

Order the Battery Recycling Kit online, fill the bucket and ship it back.

Each kit comes with a battery bucket shipped to your location, a sealable plastic bag, a return box, and a pre-paid return shipping label.  Fill the bucket with Alkaline (AAA, AA, C, D, 9 volt & lantern), Carbon Zinc, NiCd, NiMH, Silver Oxide and Mercury batteries.

When the bucket is full, close it and place it near your mailbox.
Once we receive your filled kit, we will notify you that your Recycling Certificate is available online.

Battery must be marked by manufacturer "non-spillable". 
Batteries must have terminals taped or each battery must be individually bagged.
Not available in Alaska, Hawaii, Maine or outside the United States.
