Did you know that household batteries contain mercury? While a useful element, mercury is a toxic metal and all household batteries should be properly disposed of as hazardous waste or recycled. This includes all AAA, AA, C, D, button cell, 9 Volt, rechargeable and single-use batteries.
Household batteries may be recycled in Morgan Hill's curbside recycling program. Batteries should be placed in a zippered plastic bag and placed on top of your recycling cart. No automotive batteries will be accepted.
