Batteries

Storage
  • Store batteries in a vented, nonmetal container
  • Do not place an airtight lid on the container, because gases that normally vent from batteries may be trapped, creating a potentially dangerous situation
  • Label battery storage containers with the words, Batteries for Recycling or Hazardous Waste Batteries;
  • Inspect battery containers regularly to ensure that they are not leaking or broken

For more information on batteries including descriptions, common uses, and disposal information, view the Battery Brochure.
