DAY 15 | Recycling Batteries

Another weird item we need to watch out for when recycling is batteries. It’s part of electronic waste that can’t go in a regular recycling bin. Mostly batteries end up in the landfill.

My husband has a whole drawer full of batteries and now I’m thinking of all the batteries we have gone through over the years. EEEKK! How many have I thrown away?!?

I want to prevent more batteries from ending up in a landfill. So I looked at the places in my area, and I found a place that accepts recycled batteries.

My change today is alerting the family that I will be accepting batteries in my room for recycling.
