How to Prepare Your Loose Batteries for Recycling

The U.S. Department of Transportation (“DOT”)  requires all loose batteries to be packaged properly to prevent explosions and fires in transit or at SEAM’s facility. Exposed terminals must be protected with non-conductive caps or tape, or by other appropriate means. When in doubt, tape the terminals.
