Battery Recycling Program

You can recycle your dead household alkaline batteries. Just look for the brown bin at all Suffolk Public Library locations and other convenient places around the city.

Please click here to find out where to recycle your AA, AAA, C, D, and 9V batteries.

In one year we have kept 2,404lbs of batteries out of our landfill - that's the equivalent in weight of a male polar bear.
