Save Your Batteries!

And bring them to the township building for recycling!  The Lower Gwynedd Environmental Advisory Council has installed a battery receptacle in the breezeway and invites township residents to dispose of your household batteries there rather than sending them to the landfill.   

Household batteries include standard alkaline, nickel cadium (NiCd), lithium, button batteries and more (no car batteries!).  Some small electronics like cell phones are also accepted.

Please see specific instructions (you may need to tape and/or bag certain batteries) and a list of acceptable batteries at the receptacle, which is located next to the prescription medicine receptacle in the breezeway of the township building.
