Where to Dispose of Batteries in Valparaiso
Batteries contain corrosive materials and heavy metals that can contaminate the environment and produce harmful toxins. If they’re disposed of in landfills or incinerated, toxic materials within the batteries can be released into the environment and cause detrimental side effects to both humans and the environment.
When the battery sits in the landfill, the toxic materials from the battery seep into the soil, causing our water ways to be poisoned. If batteries are incinerated, toxic fumes are produced and pollute the air around the area, effecting both humans, plants, and animals alike. Recycling batteries helps significantly reduces the dangers these batteries pose to human health and the environment. Helping us all live happy, healthier lives!
