Lithium batteries have become increasingly popular over the past few years due to their superior performance and long lifespan. However, as with all batteries, they will eventually need to be replaced, and disposing of them improperly can cause significant environmental harm. Therefore, it is important to recycle your lithium batteries to minimize the impact on the environment.Recycle your Battery

Determine what type of lithium battery you have
There are two main types of lithium batteries: primary and secondary.
- Primary lithium batteries are non-rechargeable and are commonly used in small electronic devices such as cameras, watches, and calculators. ( We do not accept these)
- Secondary lithium batteries are rechargeable and are commonly used in larger devices such as laptops, cell phones, and power tools. It is important to know which type of battery you have because the recycling process can differ based on the type.(We ACCEPT THESE!!!)
Prepare the battery for recycling
Before recycling your lithium battery, it is important to prepare it properly. If the battery is still functioning, discharge it completely before recycling. If the battery is damaged, place it in a plastic bag or wrap ( lithium battery bags click here ) it in tape to prevent any leaks.
