We use them in our flashlights, remote controls, security cameras, fire alarms, and more.
But what do we do with them when they no longer provide power? If they are the rechargeable kind, we put them in a charger and use them over again. But even these kind are no longer able to do their job properly at some point. So what do we do with them? Throw them away in the trash and have them hauled to the landfill?
No! They need to be disposed of in a way that is safe for the Earth, our children, and our grandchildren.
We shouldn’t leave them a major dump site to deal with.
