Recycling Waste Program
Keep Carroll Beautiful has a recycling program to recycle used batteries, ballasts, used thermostats, intact fluorescent & CFL bulbs, and other non-traditional recycling. Drop off recyclable materials at our office in Carrollton, where separate containers are available for each type of material.
Please tape all battery terminals.
AA, AAA, C, D, and 9-volt batteries. Acceptable types of dry cell batteries include alkaline, nickel, cadmium, nickel metal hydride, iron, zinc carbon, and silver.
Proper disposal of harmful electronics like ballasts is often difficult to find. PCB’s and other hazardous materials are found in ballast, so drop them in our special containers and allow us to properly dispose of them.
Smoke Detector, Thermostat, & Thermometer Recycling
If you have smoke detectors old thermostats or thermometers to recycle, please bring them to KCB at any time and leave them on our porch. We will properly recycle them for you. They may also be recycled through manufacturer take-back programs.
These products are sent to the TerraCycle program where they are reused to make other items. These are accepted at our office.
Please recycle only clean, dry plastic bags and film. Remove receipts or any other items from bags.
Do NOT include the following:
No food or cling wrap, prepackaged food bags including frozen food bags (e.g., prewashed salad bags), film that has been painted or has excessive glue, other bags or films, or degradable bags.
KCB provides biannual E-Recycling events where you can bring all of your old electronics and properly dispose of them. If you need to recycle electronics at other times, or are a business that has a large quantity of electronics to recycle, please contact our office.
