Batteries that end up in landfills can leach heavy metals into soil, groundwater, and surface water. Proper recycling helps prevent harmful pollution and can save resources by reusing some of the components to make new batteries.
The University Store in Millberry Union has a convenient bin that makes it easy to recycle used batteries. For additional drop-off locations for used (including car) batteries in San Francisco, please visit http://www.sfenvironment.com.
