How do I recycle batteries?
The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) accepts many kinds of batteries for disposal as Household Hazardous Waste at their self help locations and mobile collection sites. See the MMSD web site for locations and hours. For alkaline (AAA, AA, A, C, D) batteries the preferred method of disposal is with MMSD but they may be placed in your trash. Automobile batteries are not accepted by the City of West Allis or MMSD. Exchange with new automobile battery purchase or contact Batteries Plus, National Salvage or Remy Batteries. Button batteries (used in watches, hearing aids, etc) are not accepted by the City of West Allis; MMSD will accept button batteries. Rechargeable nickel cadmium batteries are not accepted by the City of West Allis; contact retail stores such as Ace Hardware, Batteries Plus, Black and Decker Service Center, Radio Shack or Wal-Mart or take to a Hazardous Waste Collection site. There is a PILOT program for recycling electronics at the Municipal Yard that will accept batteries from one to four family residential properties in West Allis. See the Document Library for more information.
