FYI: Battery Recycling

I had to learn that a lot of people don't know what to do with there old or used batteries. So they just trash-'em! We are using a lot of them on the set... for the little handheld TV, for your receiver, for your follow focus, etc... The sound guy, depending on his set up, uses a shit load of D-cells and 9 Volts for the wireless Mic and AA for the boom.

All sound guys that I work with, either collect them until I work with them again or they started to bring them to the recycling place them self... (and yes I'm proud of that accomplishment!)

I have been using rechargeable's for years and converted my monitors, receivers, lights, etc. to Anton Bauer and I'm in the process of converting my small TV's to the Sony M Info Lithium, The same that my Preston uses, But...

Believe it or not but I'm bringing my Alkaline Batteries to IKEA here in the states. The Burbank office takes them... across from the customer service desks are bins set up and they take: Batteries, Light Bulbs, Paper, Glass, etc...

For Rechargeable Batteries like the Info Lithium, NiCad, NMiH and the like, just go to a "Batteries Plus" or another place that re-cells batteries...

The best thing is that it's free and you are doing something for the environment...

I just thought I'll share.

Be safe and recycle...

Happy New Year!
