Battery Recycling Program Limited to Individual Residents Only - Not Institutions
This program was started for individual households because household alkaline batteries are no longer accepted at IEPA-sponsored Household Hazardous Waste events due to their benign nature and high recycling costs.
The city, in conjunction with SWANCC, will only take batteries from individuals, not from schools, institutions or businesses that have collected on their employees' behalf.
