AAA of Southern New England is holding a "Battery Roundup" Saturday, April 25 from 9 a.m. to noon as part of its Earth Day observance.
Instead of charging for the service, AAA will donate $2 per battery collected to environmental and conservation-minded organizations. Last year, AAA collected more than 1,500 batteries.
The club sent an email to AAA members advertising the program, but the collection also is open to the general public. AAA notes that 99 percent of batteries are recyclable and advises those taking advantage of the program to wear gloves and transport the used batteries upright and in a box or leakproof container.
