Batteries are banned from the landfill in Vermont. Some, including batteries embedded in rechargeable electronic devices, can catch fire and explode if handled or stored improperly. Tape the terminal ends of used household batteries with clear packing tape, and bring them to a collection center to be recycled for free through Vermont's Extended Producer Responsibility program, Call2Recycle.
