Important Battery Disposal Information
Help Us Avoid Fires In Our Trucks And At Our Materials Recovery Facility… Dispose of Your Household Batteries in the Collection Bin Located in the Parking Lot at the Galt Police Department! LOCATED AT 455 INDUSTRIAL DRIVE
BATTERIES ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE! To protect our employees, avoid the risk of fire in our collection trucks, and prevent fire in our MRF, we ask that you PLEASE USE THE NEW BATTERY COLLECTION RECEPTACLE in the Galt Police Department Parking Lot. Please do not place any batteries in Cal-Waste’s collection carts. Household alkaline batteries (including A, AA, AAA, C, D, 6-volt and 9-volt), cell phones, smartphones, iPods and other mp3 players, and their chargers are collected in clear plastic zip-lock bags and can be dropped off free of charge at the: Elk Grove Special Waste Collection Center.
In addition to the risk of fire, California environmental laws dictate that household batteries can’t be taken to the landfill. This Special Battery Collection Receptacle was purchased with a grant from CalRecycle. The City of Galt is anticipating placing an additional bin on the northeast side of town. Please remove all batteries from storage bags. Only household batteries may be placed in the bin; no automotive or motorcycle batteries are allowed.
