Websites such as Earth911.com and Call2Recycle.org allow you to enter your ZIP code to find locations that accept batteries for recycling. Call2Recycle limits the items it accepts for recycling to rechargeable batteries and cell phones. Earth 911 helps locate recycling locations for all types of consumer products.
Many municipalities and jurisdictions restrict the types of materials they accept for recycling. They often refuse to accept items such as paints, chemicals and hazardous products, electronics, and appliances. Most jurisdictions also refuse yard waste, automotive and industrial fluids, and car batteries. Earth911 displays drop-off locations for these categories on an interactive map and lists the locations with address and contact information.
