GACCRecycles Avenues Recycling Tip for February by Shannon Macmillan: Visit and, both sites have tools to help locate recycling drop-off points for hard to recycle items. The Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM) has collection events; visit   Used batteries made from lithium are considered hazardous waste and should not be disposed of in the trash. The Home Depot and Lowe’s accept used lithium batteries.  By comparison, batteries that are designed to be used once, such as disposable alkaline AA batteries, aren’t quite as dangerous but can still be recycled. Store used batteries until collection events in a secure container such as a clear plastic upcycled bottle that keeps them lined up side-by-side, so the contact points can’t touch each other or brush up against anything that’s metallic or conductive to create a spark and potential fire. Alternatively, tape over the ends to prevent contact with other battery ends.  For questions on recycling, ways to reduce household waste, or clarification on this topic, please contact  .   Shannon presented this RECYCLING SLIDESHOW at our November 2022 meeting, and more about the program can be seen here
