Count the number of batteries used to power cell phones, telephones, computers, watches, music devices, remote controls, cameras, smoke detectors, games, toys, hearing aids, flashlights, power tools, and more!

If so, does this make you responsible for battery toxins causing serious harm to people, animals, crops, and nature?  To find out more information, read the wonderful battery brochure developed by the City of Pittsburg below.
