Due to potential fire hazard, Hennepin County has immediately discontinued collection of batteries at libraries, county facilities, city buildings, city event collections and other community locations.

The County still accepts batteries at its drop-off facilities in Brooklyn Park and Bloomington and at County household hazardous waste event collections. Find more information about battery recycling at www.hennepin.us/batteryrecycling
