Although Wisconsin point-of-sale notices do not require specific language, the notices must indicate that: 1) is illegal to dispose of a motor vehicle battery or other battery in a landfill or incinerator; 2) batteries should be recycled; and 3) state law requires retailers to accept used batteries as trade-ins and in some other instances. Wisconsin point-of-sale notices will be produced, printed and distributed by the state.
