Battery Recycling

Household batteries of all sizes (AAA, AA, C, D, button cell, 9 Volt, etc.), both rechargeable and single use are considered hazardous waste when discarded. All household batteries can be recycled at the City's Household Hazardous Waste Program or at the following drop-off locations.

Warning: Lithium button batteries are very dangerous to children and pets. Improper handling or storage may result in death or injury. 
Batteries are also fire hazards. Click here [PDF] to read about 9Volt battery safety.

Please note: Deposit used alkaline and rechargeable household batteries only. Please tape contacts of lithium batteries. No plastic bags. Automotive, motorcycle and industrial batteries are not accepted at these drop locations. Automotive and industrial batteries can be recycled at a City of Thousand Oaks Hazardous Waste Collection Event. Return to the top of the page for hazardous waste collection dates and program guidelines.
