Batteries are hazardous and must NOT go in any trash, recycling, or composting bin. Disposal options vary based on your housing type.
Single family home or small multifamily buildings (under six units): Put household batteries into a clear plastic bag and place on top of your black bin on collection day.
Multifamily buildings with six units or more: Your building manager can order a free battery collection bucket by contacting Recology at (415) 330-1300. Recology will deliver the orange battery recycling bucket to your building.
Lithium batteries: Please tape over lithium battery contacts. Lithium batteries are marked with "Li" or "Li-ion."
