AAA Carolinas is offering $1 for each car or boat battery brought in to a AAA Car Care Center in the Carolinas this week.
David Parsons is president of AAA Carolinas. He says batteries can harm the environment if they're not properly disposed of.
Earth Day is Wednesday.
Nationwide, AAA has collected over 75,000 batteries during Earth Week since 2001. Residents of the Carolinas have recycled over 4,700 batteries.
