Important Safety Notice on Batteries 

Please do NOT put batteries—or any devices containing batteries—in your trash or recycling containers. They can start fires. If you need to charge a device, it has a battery. Don't throw it out. Take it to a drop-off site. Check your local Clean Sweep location, battery store or for a nearby drop-off site. Please remove all batteries from items you set out for the annual curbside clean-ups.
