Alkaline Batteries

Alkaline or Single-use batteries are the most common types of household batteries and come in many sizes such as AA, AAA, C, D and 9-volt.  Vermont is the first state in the nation to pass single-use/alkaline battery recycling. 

The WSWMD accepts alkaline batteries during normal business hours, at no charge.

Reduce: If you would like to cut down on the number of alkaline batteries you are using consider purchasing a battery charger and compatible rechargeable batteries.

Please note: rechargeable batteries can not be disposed of in your trash.  The Windham Solid Waste Management District accepts rechargeable batteries on a daily basis, free of charge.
