Fountain Valley has a program for recycling used household batteries. Recycling old batteries keeps battery chemicals out of the landfill and allows the waste to be reprocessed for other needs. This is a free service available to all Fountain Valley residents. Batteries from businesses are not accepted.
There are three recycling stations: one located inside the Fountain Valley Recreation Center (16400 Brookhurst Street), another at the Senior Center (17967 Bushard Street), and another at City Hall (10200 Slater Avenue).
Acceptable battery types include all AAA, AA, C, D, button cell, 9 volt, rechargeable batteries, and cell phone batteries. Car batteries are not accepted. Please tape over 9-volt battery terminals.
Collected batteries are sent to a certified recycling plant for the removal of metals and proper disposal of hazardous material. Responsibly recycling these batteries saves natural resources and helps protect public health through the reuse of reclaimed materials and by keeping heavy metals away from landfills and water supplies.
