The Mercury-Containing and Rechargeable Battery Management Act, or simply Battery Act, was signed into law in 1996. This law created regulations for the processes of disposing of and recycling batteries. By recycling your used Alkaline batteries, you’re not only doing what’s right for the environment and your community, you’re also following the law.
Laws regulating battery recycling vary from state to state, so check out the International Battery Council’s website for a state-by-state breakdown of battery recycling laws.

The Environmental Protection agency, or EPA, created the Universal Waste Regulation in order to make clear the safest processes for recycling batteries and other potentially toxic products. Batteries contain heavy metals, acids, and other toxic substances that, if not properly disposed of, can leak into the environment and wreak havoc on your surroundings.
This set of regulations are a good starting point, but many battery disposal companies ship batteries overseas to countries with laxer recycling laws in order to avoid having to abide by all regulations or pay certain fees and fines.
That’s not how we play at Battery Recyclers of America. We’re committed to sustainability in our disposal and recycling practices, and so we don’t cut any corners. We follow all of the EPA’s regulations, so you can know that your batteries are being recycled right.
