Join us in welcoming our NEW BETTERY Swap Station where you can purchase reusable household batteries and recycle your old single-use alkaline batteries.

 

EVERY YEAR 2.5 Million batteries end up in the landfill.   THAT'S A LOT OF BATTERIES

 

BETTERY reduces waste, and saves you money with every swap. It’s an easy way to make a positive change at home and in the world. Never throw out another battery. Never wait to recharge. Save money and get better portable power.

Using state-of-the-art AA and AAA rechargeable batteries, you can join the movement of consumers across the nation stepping up to reusable products, without sacrificing performance and without paying more.

Swapping batteries is simple, you just:

 

  • Buy batteries at any BETTERY Swap Station, at participating retail locations.
  • Take the batteries home, and use them until they are drained.
  • Swap the drained batteries at the BETTERY Swap Station for freshly tested and charged batteries – without the hassling with recharging at home.

Recycle your old alkaline batteries

Don’t dispose of your alkaline batteries in the trash. Bring along that bag of old single-use alkaline (AA, AAA, C and D) batteries you have, and we’ll recycle them responsibly.

 

Find out more about Bettery here.
