The first battery collection of 2023 is scheduled for Saturday, January 21, 2023 from 9 a.m .- 11 a.m. at the Lower Gwynedd Township Building . This collection is only open to LGT residents, and proof of residency will be required. Residents will be required to properly tape certain batteries before dropping them off (see list below), and are asked to do so before arriving to speed up the drop-off process.
All lithium batteries and any battery over 9V must have the terminals covered with clear tape to prevent accidental short circuiting, which can cause a fire, during shipping. Batteries that are accepted for recycling are:
- Zinc Carbon
- Nickel Cadmium (NiCd)
- Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
- Lithium Primary
- Mercury Batteries
- Silver Oxide
- Button Cells (could be lithium)
- Lead Acid – Non-Spillable
Make sure and mark your calendars.
