Cordless appliances and tools are everywhere. What happens when it’s time to throw them away?
Cordless appliances and tools have rechargeable batteries that release toxic chemicals and cause serious fires when punctured, cracked, or crushed.
Instead, remove batteries before getting rid of old appliances.
Take all batteries to Montgomery County’s Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off or select retailers so that they can be properly recycled.
If you can’t remove the battery, bring the whole appliance to Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off for safe disposal.
Go to bit.ly/KeepOutBatteries for more information and a drop-off location near you.
Our workers and our equipment are counting on you to be safe!
