The city of Galt has installed a special receptacle to collect household batteries to help residents dispose of the hazardous waste properly. Due to California environmental laws, batteries are not to be taken out with the trash to landfills. The receptacle is located in the Galt Police Department parking lot, 455 Industrial Drive. The city is looking to place a second bin on the northeast side of town. The bin was purchased with a grant from CalRecycle. Staff is asking that all batteries be removed from storage bags and that only household batteries be placed in the bin; no automotive or motorcycle batteries are allowed.
