*Availability of battery pickup varies by neighborhood*

We can take almost any type of battery, as long as it’s small enough to fit into the Ridwell “Batteries” bag! For safe storage, please make sure to tape the ends of your batteries with electrical tape or clear packing tape.

You can see an overview with pictures of the kinds of batteries we can take by going to our What We Take page, entering your zip code, and scrolling down to the “Household batteries” section.

Here are some examples of batteries we can take:

We can take
Alkaline batteries
Lithium-ion batteries

Corroded batteries (please place these into a separate plastic bag inside your Ridwell battery bag!)

Leaking batteries
Batteries larger than the Ridwell battery bag
