When throwing your rubbish away, most people know that there are some items that should never go in the household trash. This includes dead batteries, although few know the reason why. In this article, we will be explaining the importance of disposing your batteries correctly, and why batteries in the household trash can cause environmental hazards.  

 

The Dangers of Batteries 

 Batteries can be either primary (a one-time use battery) or secondary (rechargeable and reusable). Whether its your standard alkaline AA battery, a rechargeable cell phone battery, or the battery from your car, you should treat it with care by using safe storage and disposal methods,” says James Dickerson, Ph.D., Consumer Reports’ chief scientific officer. Most batteries are made with a number of harmful and toxic heavy metals, including: 

  • Cadmium 
  • Lead 
  • Lithium 
  • Potassium 
  • Mercury 
  • Copper 
  • Zinc 
  • Manganese  

If your old batteries end up in a landfill, these harmful pollutants can leak into the environment and contaminate groundwater, damage fragile ecosystems and end up in the food chain. Furthermore, theres also a possibility that they can overheat and spark a fire. 

 

When youre collecting and storing batteries for recycling, its important to take precautionary measures to reduce the risk of any short-circuits. This includes placing masking tape over the positive terminal end so that it may not come into contact with metal or other batteries, and reusing the original packaging to house the spent ones. Another effective way to store used batteries is placing them in a secure container that keeps them lined up side-by-side. This prevents them from brushing up against anything thats metallic or conductive.  

 

By using your common garbage service improperlyyoure exposing the the land, water supplies, and your community to toxic materials. At Manville, a leading Canadian recycler, we accept and collect all of your recyclable materials. Keep in mind that when you recycle your batteries, almost no waste is created in the process! You can bring any type of lead acid battery to us for recycling.
