Find out why you shouldn’t toss old disposable batteries in the trash. Disposal batteries contain toxic chemicals that can leach into the soil and pollute groundwater when they end up in landfills. So don’t throw old batteries in the trash, rather dispose of them in allocated battery collection bins like the ones found at some leading retail stores.
Replace old disposable batteries with rechargeable batteries. Although they are initially higher in price, they have a lower total cost of use and a lower environmental impact than disposable batteries because they can be recharged and used many times.
