Battery Recycling Comes to Hunter
Drop-off points for used household batteries are far and few between in NYC, so this is a welcome addition to Hunter's sustainability effort. When batteries are thrown into the garbage, they usually end up in landfills. The caustic acids they contain can leak out and leach into the soil and water table. Stop by and put your spent batteries into these new, clear plastic, green-capped cylinders.
