    Ni-Cad and Lithium Battery Recycling Program

    What is a NiCad Battery?

    The nickel-cadmium or NiCad battery is a rechargeable battery that uses a nickel oxide hydroxide and metallic cadmium as electrodes. They have a wide variety of uses, including cell phones, handheld electronics, power tools, medical equipment, and emergency lighting.

    What is a Lithium Battery?

    Lithium-ion batteries are rechargeable batteries that are found in electronic devices such as laptops, cell phones, cameras, power tools, certain specialty devices, and emergency lighting. These batteries are made of nickel, cobalt, copper, manganese, electrolyte, and certain forms of plastic casing. The metals and plastics they contain can be reused in new products, so there is value in recycling them.

    Li-ion batteries are one of the most popular types of rechargeable batteries, due to their high energy density and low self-discharge. Because of their power and longevity, these batteries are becoming a common replacement for many uses, spanning outside of just home electronics.
