Changes to vehicle battery recycling locations

(Port Orchard, WA) - Effective April 1, 2016, the Poulsbo Recycle Center and Olympic View Transfer Station will no longer have vehicle battery recycling available, due to issues of misuse and ongoing collection contamination. Numerous vehicle battery recycling options exist close to both locations.

Please see http://www.kitsapgov.com/sw/recycle.asp?ItemID=86 for a list of places that recycle personal-use auto batteries.

Do not throw vehicle batteries in the garbage. They contain lead and acidic liquid. For Kitsap County residents, the best option is to turn in an old battery at an auto parts store with the purchase of a new one, or take them to one of the other locations listed in the link above.

For businesses, please visit http://www.kitsapgov.com/sw/sqg.htm for recycling options.
