Recycle Used Batteries and Light bulbs!

Did you know that although household batteries make up less than 1% of trash in landfills, they can be responsible for up to 70% of the heavy metals found in landfills?*

Fortunately, Batteries & Bulbs, a new business to open soon on the East Side of Richmond, will be able to recycle ANY battery or light bulb from your home or business. By recycling these items, heavy metals such as cadmium, mercury, and lead, will be taken from used products to make new ones.

Over 100 million new lead batteries are made from recycled waste lead acid batteries every year in North America!*

With your help, we can make that number even larger and keep our landfills healthy and long lasting. Stay tuned for more information!
