    Where Can I (Wednesday)… Recycle Used Batteries in Philadelphia?

    We’ve gone over where to recycle laptop batteries and battery chargers, but where can one recycle plain old (& rechargeable) batteries in Philadelphia?

    For recycling the conventional (single-use) battery variety:

    Recycling rechargeable batteries:

    • Radio Shack (CC locations: 1616 Chestnut St & 1001 Market St)
    • Staples (1044 Market St)
    • Home Depot (1651 S Columbus Blvd)
    • Eforce Compliance (3114 Grays Ferry Ave)
    • Best Buy
    • Philadelphia Streets HazWaste Events

    Recycle on, Philly!

      This is a very useful little article. But I wanted to add that Best Buy only accepts reusable batteries. Their website outlines that alkaline batteries are not currently accepted. Thank you!

      Thanks Abby! Companies do update their policies frequently, so feel free to call the business prior to going over for a drop off. We’ll update our post in the meantime. Thanks again!

      So, apparently Whole Foods doesn’t take disposable batteries anymore. I went to the Callowhill st. store and they had covered up the receptacle for the batteries.

      Whole Foods Market South Street does accept rechargeable batteries, but unfortunately, neither the South Street nor Callowhill store can accept single-use batteries. Thanks!
