Day 312: Recycled Single Use Batteries

I brought my single use batteries in to be recycled.

I’ve been using rechargeable batteries as I’m phasing out the single use ones.

My local library has a drop off for them. If yours doesn’t, check out to see where you can recycle yours locally.

According to, “On average, each person in the U.S discards eight dry-cell batteries per year. Additionally, most batteries are made up of heavy metals. Some of these toxic heavy metals in batteries include nickel, mercury and lead, which can threaten our environment if not properly discarded.”

What was your simple green act for the day?
