Did You Know

Electronic toys are made from many different types of materials including plastics and small metal parts. There is not a one-size-fits-all disposal method. It's best to donate or reuse toys in working condition, so they can still be enjoyed. If your item is damaged beyond repair, place the toy in the garbage, or use an alternative option.

ALWAYS remove and dispose of batteries according to local guidelines, to prevent them from causing fires or leaching harmful chemicals.

Recycling all types of batteries at an authorized recycling facility is encouraged. Improper disposal of batteries and their chemical components can lead to contamination of land and water. Batteries are also made with rare metals, and as a finite resource, recycling batteries allows these materials to be reused.
