Is it Against the Law to Throw Away Single Use Batteries?
Single-use batteries contain materials that are both recyclable and considered hazardous. At this point in time, the state of California is the only state in which it is illegal to throw any type of battery (including single-use) in the trash. However, just because it may not be illegal in your state, batteries should still be disposed of in a responsible manner since they contain toxic materials than negatively impact the environment.
