Get $5 for your old car and boat batteries

If you want to get rid of your old auto or marine batteries, you can get $5 for them as part of the AAA Carolinas' Great Battery Roundup.

The recycling effort is held every year during April, which is Car Care Month. It also coincides with Earth Day.

Drop them off at any of the 33 AAA car centers or 56 participating auto repair shops throughout South Carolina and North Carolina.

The recycling effort runs through April 30th.

It saves batteries from being dumped illegally.

AAA Carolinas has collected more than 150,000 old batteries in the past three years.
