Curbside Battery Recycling Program
Battery waste is generated in small quantities by everyone. The average person produces between 1.5 and 3 pounds of used batteries each year.
Unfortunately, many batteries are still set out with the regular trash because of limited awareness or access to convenient recycling programs.
The good news is, over 95% of people surveyed said that they would recycle their batteries if it were more convenient.
Cubside Battery Recycling is the Solution!
The Curbside Battery Recycling program "Batteries Dead? Recycle Instead!" is designed to piggy back on any municipal curbside program.
- A battery recycling bag is sent to participating residents via the mail or delivered by the collection company.
- Following the directions on the bag, it's filled with used batteries and sealed using the zip tab.
- On a dedicated recycling day the bag is set out for proper recycling.
Let's team up! Our helpful staff can work with you and your team on all stages of this innovative program. From promotion to consolidation, we're here to support you and your program!
- Support with promotions
- Logistical support (collection pails and consolidation drums)

Did you know?
Zinc is one of the world's most commonly used metals. Approximately 30% of the zinc today comes from recycled sources. Raw Materials Company is able to recover zinc from the batteries that you recycle. The zinc we recover is then reused as micronutrients in fertilizer to grow corn for biofuel.
As a result of RMC's recycled materials, farmers are able to increase their yields by over 20 bushels per acre. This is important considering our growing population and the need to make efficient use of our existing farmland.
