The acronyms UPS and SLA stand for Uninterruptible Power Supply and Sealed Lead Acid. Your computer may have a UPS battery and your car probably has an SLA battery and batteries are banned from disposal as garbage. You pay an environmental fee on items such as UPS/SLA batteries, so you can often return them to the point-of-purchase. Check with your retailer.
UPS/SLA batteries are not part of the electronics program, however Call2Recycle
, the battery and cell phone recycling program will take the small sealed lead acid batteries (SSLA). For more information, see Batteries (household).
Car Batteries (large lead acid batteries) are a different program. Go to Batteries (automotive)
for more details.
