BATTERY RECYCLING PROGRAM - You can now recycle household batteries, both rechargeable and non-rechargeable, such as Alkaline (AA, AAA, C-cell, D-cell, and 9 Volt), button cell batteries, NiMH and Ni-Cd, at the Municipal Building, Activity Center and the Clover Hill Golf Course Clubhouse. To continue the program we are asking you assist us in recycling your used batteries by placing corroded batteries in individual plastic sandwich bags and taping the terminals on top of each 9 volt battery. These procedures need to be followed for safety reasons before the batteries can be shipped to the recycler. Help us do the right thing for our environment and our future, RECYCLE.
