Battery Recycling

The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County's (SWANCC) member communities offer a Battery Recycling Program to residents within the region. The Agency contracts with Interstate Batteries in Skokie to provide recycling.

Household batteries will only be accepted from individual residents – not in large amounts that were collected from schools, businesses or institutions. Thank you for your cooperation.

Batteries accepted in SWANCC’s program include:

• Alkaline:  AA, AAA, C, D and 9V

• Rechargeable: NiCd, NiMh, lithium ion, lithium polymer - Before dropping off rechargeable batteries, residents need to tape the contact points on each battery or place in an individual self-locking plastic baggie to avoid sparks.• Alkaline batteries must be separated from rechargeable batteries before drop-off.

SWANCC's Green Pages: Reuse and Recycling Directory provides additional options for battery recycling.
