Carpinteria Community Library is proud to start its sustainability efforts and support for the environment by responsibly recycling  with the community.

Batteries are considered hazardous waste in California when they are discarded. All batteries must be recycled or taken to a household hazardous waste disposal facility, a universal waste handler (e.g., storage facility or broker), or an authorized recycling facility.

Accepted materials at the Carpinteria Community Library:

  • AAA, AA, C, D, button cell, 9-volt, and all other batteries, both rechargeable and single-use batteries.
