Household Batteries

Home / Household Batteries

Household Battery Drop Sites:

We offer dozens of battery bucket locations throughout Porter County where you can drop off all of your household batteries. Your batteries can also be brought to any of our Household Hazardous Waste collection events, where we also accept automobile (lead-acid) batteries!

We accept all household batteries at these drop sites, but not automobile or lead-acid batteries.

Accessibility to any of these locations may be limited to hours of operation and are dependent on the battery bucket's registrant.
