NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.– We’re taking an approach of looking things you should never do with batteries-even dead ones. We were inspired by videos we found on line about stupid things people have done with batteries.
This includes putting batteries into a fire and putting batteries into a microwave. We also wondered what happens if you swallowed a battery or if your pet swallowed a battery. These are all BAD situations and toxic actions. So what happens to batteries when we dump them into a landfill? Is this a bad idea and what can we do to change the situation? What is being done?
