You’ve squeezed every possible volt from your lithium batteries. Now what? Don't treat them like everyday trash. Bring them to Skokie Village Hall - Health and Human Services Department, at 5127 Oakton St. Your used lithium batteries find new life as they're meticulously recycled. But remember, we can only accept batteries from residential sources - commercial organizations, this isn't your gig.
Before bringing in your batteries, there's a small amount of prep work to be done. For lithium batteries with terminals or button batteries, it's 'tape time'! Slap a little adhesive tape on those ends. This simple act safeguards against unwanted discharges and sparks. Safety first, Skokie!
So let's not waste any more time or, indeed, any more batteries. The Village is all charged up and ready to receive your contributions. Remember, it's not just power we're saving; it's our planet! Let's energize our efforts towards a sustainable future, starting with a small but mighty step: recycling lithium batteries responsibly.

Village Hall hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
