The Mercury Containing and Battery Management Act of 1996 phased out the use of mercury in traditional household (alkaline) batteries. Because of this, there are no local outlets to recycle these batteries and they have been deemed ‘safe’ to throw in the trash by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
