“The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. Throughout the country that you hold as a possession,
you must provide for the redemption of the land.” Leviticus 25:23-24

UPDATE ON BATTERY RECYCLING
Earthkeepers will no longer be recycling alkaline batteries since these are now deemed safe to put in landfills. We will, however, take rechargeable batteries. Look for the battery recycling seals on rechargeable batteries. They are usually lithium-ion, nickel-cadmium, nickel-metal hydride, nickel-zinc or small sealed lead batteries which are less common in homes (often found in emergency devices, emergency exit signs, security systems, mobility scooters and other special-use items). Another accepted battery is a button-cell battery (3 volt or otherwise often found in a watch or other small electronics), which is hazardous and should be disposed of like a rechargeable battery.
Please cover all terminals with non-conductive clear tape before putting in our recycling basket at the Collection Center in the lobby. (If any batteries are physically damaged, please deposit them in a plastic bag to avoid any short-circuiting.)
