Recycling Bulbs and Batteries

Bundle of Batteries

Spent batteries and fluorescent bulbs are among the items that are considered a hazardous waste, and not suitable for disposal in the regular trash bin. Batteries, in particular, contain toxic chemicals that have the potential to leach into the environment when the casing they are contained disintegrates or is crushed. CFLs and other fluorescent bulbs, on the other hand, contain amounts of mercury – a dangerous toxin – but they also have components that can be recycled such as glass and metals.
One free and convenient way to recycle household batteries (heavy duty, alkaline, camcorder, and cell phone), compact bulbs and tubes up to 48 inches in length is by dropping them off at Kens's Ace Hardware, 303 S. Diamond Bar Boulevard, during its operating hours of 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
