Since our shipments may contain batteries, we are required in accordance with the Battery Act to notify you of the following:
Batteries may not be disposed of in your household trash: rather, you are required by law to return used batteries. Old batteries may contain hazardous materials which could damage your health or the environment if not properly stored or disposed of. But batteries also contain important materials like iron, zinc, manganese and nickel and can be recycled.
