Latest ‘Green Tip’ Helps Battery-Buyers Take Charge


Regarding the battery dilemma, Penn College’s Energy Conservation Subcommittee offers these suggestions via Earth911: Rechargeables drain with frequent use, are more costly initially and require provisions for disposal. They have their own recycle system in recharging. Single-use batteries are less costly and more available and should be used with more frequently used items, such as smoke detectors, remote controls and cameras. There is also the issue of disposal. Any battery with lead, acid, nickel or cadmium needs to be “returned properly” and can be reused as scrap metal or in the manufacture of new batteries.
