Please recycle your batteries and cell phones by handing them to a transfer station attendant for separate processing; never place in recycling dumpsters! As you may know, improper disposal of batteries can release mercury, cadmium or other heavy metals into the air and water, ultimately entering the food chain and posing health threats to people and the environment. Here’s a handy graphic on recycling specific battery types. For more detailed information, read this press release from the Franklin County Solid Waste Management District.
