Community members who have used batteries don’t have to worry about making a special trip to the landfill.
They can drop them off at HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire.
The Woodbridge-based car repair shop is accepting used laptop, car and motorcycle batteries. It will make sure the batteries are brought to the appropriate recycling facility.
Some landfills may only accept batteries on certain days or charge a fee.
“Here at HomeTowne we’ll take them — free of charge — that way we can do our part to help the environment,” General Manager Rich Campbell said.
