Automotive, Marine and RV Batteries

  Automotive, Marine and RV Batteries

All batteries are considered hazardous waste in California when they are discarded. This includes automotive, marine, agricultural and RV lead acid, gel and amalgamated glass mat batteries. Batteries are considered hazardous because they contain toxic and/or corrosive materials and may contain sulphuric acid. Automotive batteries are rich in lead and other metals and materials that can be reused and recycled into new products. All batteries should be recycled or taken to a household hazardous waste facility, a universal waste handler, or an authorized recycling facility for proper disposal.

There is NO COST for San Joaquin County residents to recycle or properly dispose of these materials at San Joaquin County's Household Hazardous Waste Facility.

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THESE ITEMS IN THE GARBAGE OR POUR BATTERY FLUIDS DOWN DRAINS!
