Batteries

Free Battery Drop off. Household batteries contain at least 22 toxic elements including mercury, lead, cadmium, and more. Recycle your old household batteries by dropping them off at the District’s main office or at any County of Marin Bulb and Battery Take Back (B&B) locations.

Please make sure to tape the terminals first with either duct, masking or scotch tape. We cannot accept untaped batteries as the Department of Transportation no longer allows waste haulers to transport them without this additional step. Thank you!!
