Li-ion Bat­tery Re­cy­cling

The Family Handyman - - BEST PRO TIPS - BRAD HOLDEN, AS­SO­CIATE ED­I­TOR

I’m a lit­tle em­bar­rassed to ad­mit that in all the years I’ve been us­ing bat­tery-pow­ered tools, I’ve never no­ticed the fine print on the bat­ter­ies. On vir­tu­ally ev­ery tool bat­tery, there’s a num­ber to call to find out where to take it for re­cy­cling: (800) 822-8837.

I can fi­nally ex­hume my old, dead tool bat­ter­ies from their crypt (a card­board box in the garage) and re­spon­si­bly dis­pose of them! The pre­his­toric nicad va­ri­ety can be re­cy­cled as well. Some home cen­ters of­fer bat­tery re­cy­cling; just drop them off on your next trip.
