THERE IS A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING IN FRANKLIN COUNTY
Lead Acid Batteries
State law banned lead acid (car) batteries from landfills on January 1, 1995. Residents are encouraged to get the merchant to recycle the old lead acid battery when purchasing a new one. NAPA, Car Quest, and O’Reilly Auto Parts will accept lead acid batteries free of charge and recycle them.
On July 1992, the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio Sanitary Landfill began segregating and recycling appliances. An additional disposal fee is charged to cover the extra labor and recycling costs. Residents can take their unwanted appliances to Central Ohio Auto Parts, Bargain House, Joyce Scrap Iron and Metal, or Phillips Services.
