Automotive Waste

Car Batteries

It is illegal to dispose of a car battery in the trash. Car batteries are NOT accepted at ecopark.

Retailers (AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, etc.) are required to accept up to two used batteries per month from any individual for free. When buying a new battery, a $5 surcharge is included. Return the old battery when purchasing a new one to avoid the surcharge.

Your local municipality's public works department (city, town or village) may accept car batteries when dropped off. Contact them about their policy.

Local scrap yards may take batteries as well, but check beforehand to make sure car batteries are accepted. Click here to view local scrap yards.
