Batteries Recycling

Batteries power our lives and are found in every electronic device imaginable. Although batteries are incredibly useful and convenient sources of power, they can pose dangerous challenges. Please share in community newsletters and on social media platforms.

Legislation is being introduced to provide recycling drop-off services throughout Illinois. A new battery awareness campaign has been developed with collaboration of counties, waste and recycling companies, and battery recyclers to guide residents about proper management, safety, chemistry, and resources for end-of-life user responsibility.

There are resources, graphics, and many ways to share this information at Batteries – Illinois PSC
