AB 1125: Recycling rechargeable batteries

 
CLCV Supported
Passed Senate 26-14 (9/7/05)
Passed Assembly 42-36 (9/8/05)
Signed by the Governor

Many rechargeable batteries contain toxic heavy metals like cadmium and lead that can contaminate soil and water when deposited in a landfill. AB 1125 (Pavley) requires retailers who sell household rechargeable batteries to take back waste batteries for reuse, recycling, or proper disposal, at no cost to the consumer.
