Recycle Rechargeable Batteries
On February 1, 2010 new US Department of Transportation regulations about the disposal of single use dry-cell batteries throughout the United States went into effect.
Typical household alkaline batteries AAA, AA, C, D and 9-volt now fall below federal and state hazardous waste standards as a result of compliance with state and federal rules requiring the reduction of hazardous content in the production of batteries.
In accordance with these federal rule changes, the disposal of batteries in Ocean County and Long Beach Township is as follows:
Alkaline (use-once) non-rechargeable, non-hazardous dry-cell batteries (AAA,AA,C,D and 9-volt) should be thrown away in the regular household trash.
Rechargeable batteries and button size (use-once) hazardous batteries should be taken to Ocean County Southern Recycling Center in Stafford 609-978-0913. The center is located at 379 Haywood Road in Manahawkin.
Rechargeable batteries can also be taken to the following retail locations: Best Buy, Target, Lowes, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, and Verizon Wireless. A collection box with bags will be provided for disposal.
