Battery and Compact Florescent Bulb Recycling

California law now requires that all household batteries and compact florescent bulbs (CFLs) must be recycled. They can no longer be thrown in the trash. To assist residents, the Piedmont Fire Department in conjunction with Alameda County Household Hazardous Waste has a battery and CFL recycling program.

Batteries and CFLs can be brought to the Piedmont Fire Station, 120 Vista Avenue, Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Call (510) 420-3030 for after-hours drop-off. 
This collection service is extended to residential waste only and cannot accept batteries or CFLs from business establishments.

For more information about other disposal options for household waste that is not intended for disposal in weekly service bins, please check the
Alameda County Household Hazardous Waste website.

Items we do not accept: medications, medical sharps, car batteries, industrial batteries, long florescent tubes, batteries contained in electronics like cell phones or tablets.
