Rechargeable batteries must be recycled. Button cell batteries are hazardous waste and must be properly disposed. Button cell batteries are found in hearing aids, watches, greeting cards, and pagers. If they end up in land fills, the metals in the batteries can leach in to the soil or ground water. If incinerated, the battery can explode and release toxic materials either in to the air or concentrated in the ash that is left after burning.
There are several options to recycling rechargeable batteries:
1. Click rechargeable battery drop off locations; look on the right side bar and you will see local stores that participate in battery recycling drop off program. Purchase new rechargeable batteries at a store that offers a drop off battery recycling program.
2. Drop off your hazardous batteries at the Norwood Board of Health office; call 781.762.1240 x 176.
3. Drop off at Norwood's annual Hazardous Waste Day, which is held in May.
