Did you know that household batteries are responsible for 50 to 70% of all heavy material found in landfills? We are offering an easy way to help! Bring your old batteries to the reception desk where a pail is available for proper disposal. A recycle business will extract 61% of the battery components: zinc, manganese, steel and even the paper and plastic on the outside jacket. These materials will be sent to manufacturers for reuse. It is 85% more efficient to recycle recoverable materials then it is to mine the original ores from the ground.
