Recycle Your Single-Use Batteries
Vermont is the first state in the nation to pass single-use/household battery recycling.
Single-use batteries, such as AA, AAA, C, D and 9-volt, are used in many items. Vermonters buy over 10 million batteries per year and most end up in the landfill. Certain components of the batteries, such as heavy metals like cadmium, mercury, and lead are hazardous to human health and the environment. Recycling household batteries conserves natural resources, and lessens environmental impacts from mining for virgin materials and landfill disposal.
The Primary Battery Stewardship Law, Act 139, requires manufacturers of single-use batteries to provide a stewardship plan to manage the proper recycling of batteries sold in Vermont and establishes convenient recycling options for residents, at no cost.
The Windham Solid Waste Management District accepts batteries at the Convenience Center during normal business hours.
Please do not place batteries in curbside or roll-off recycling containers.
To view recycling information on all types of batteries, please visit our Batteries webpage.
Project C.O.W. provides locations for residents, businesses, and schools to recycle food scraps and other organic materials.
