Observe Fire Prevention Week by Recycling Your Used Rechargeable Batteries - Safely

New Jersey's recycling plants have been plagued by fires that are started by used rechargeable batteries that were tossed into curbside bins. A Newark MRF burned to the ground only eight months after it opened. The owners don't plan to rebuild. Our own Colgate Paper Stock in New Brunswick, which handles our cardboard, had a fire earlier this year, also believed to have been started by a rechargeable battery.

Keep batteries out of your bins. Tape the terminals or seal it in a plastic bag by itself and bring it to the Recycling Center battery boxes or to the Call2Recycle box in Borough Hall. Home Depot and Lowe's takes them also.
