Recycle your used lead-acid batteries.

It is illegal to discard a lead-acid battery except by delivery to a retailer, a distributor, a manufacturer, or a collection, recycling, or smelting facility approved by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

State law requires retailers to accept used lead-acid batteries upon the purchase or within 30 calendar days of the purchase of a lead-acid battery.

Michigan’s point-of-sale notices must include the three-chasing arrows recycling symbol.
