AAA gives you a place to discard used car batteries

By Megan Canterbury / Tucson News Now intern

TUCSON, Ariz. (Tucson News Now) -- If you've been looking for a way to properly discard your used car batteries, AAA has you covered. 

AAA has been serving motorists in Arizona for more than 85 years and is commencing its 13th annual Green Battery Roundup. The roundup, April 15-22, is located at any AAA owned or AAA approved Auto Repair Shop. 

Improperly stored and discarded car batteries can pose a safety hazard for humans, animals and the environment. AAA is encouraging motorists to "round up" their used car batteries and bring them to any of their approved locations. More than 1,500 auto batteries have been rounded up so far this year.

For every battery collected, AAA will donate $4 to Keep Phoenix Beautiful or Tucson Clean & Beautiful.

Please visit www.az.aaa.com/about-us/supporting-sustainability for more information about the AAA Green Battery Roundup and www.az.aaa.com/automotive/auto-repair for AAA owned and AAA approved auto repair facilities.
