Where can I dispose of old batteries?

There are many choices for household battery collection sites in the western part of the county. Your garbage collection service provider may even provide free curbside pick-up service (PDF) for batteries.

Residents in the Tahoe area may also put household batteries in a sealable plastic bag and place the bag on top of their can on collection day.
