Did you know that most residential recycling services don’t accept batteries, shopping bags, or light bulbs?
According to the EPA, about 86,000 tons of alkaline batteries end up in landfills each year. In May 2021, Warwick Township purchased dedicated containers to collect these hard-to-recycle items.
Located toward the rear of the Township Administration Building lobby, residents are invited to deposit their alkaline batteries and incandescent light bulbs into the bins.
Once the containers have been filled, they will be shipped back to Terracycle, a company dedicated to diverting millions of pounds of resources from landfills.
