recycle batteries

Anyone know where to recycle old batteries? I took them to Best Buy, but they only take rechargable ones now.

  • A Neighbor 2 albany park resident

    Aldermans office used to take them. Last time I took some in, I was told they don't do that anymore. I was told to throw them in the trash.

    The mercury was phased out Starting in 1996. That wasn't the stop date.

    I did a quick search (cuz not fully caffeinated) and couldn't find a final stop date for mercury use.
    Therefore, depending upon the age of the battery, it may still have mercury.

Goat sounds

Has anyone heard a goat crying on the 4100 block of lawndale? No I am not crazy!

  • Ellen K. From the far NW side and now back.

    Lambs always sound like they're crying. The story states it's against the law to butcher animals in Chicago (homes).

  • Great, these goats will attract chupa cabras. 😆

Saw a stray dog with red collar at Elston and belle plaine about 20 min ago.

Looked like a red fox. Skiddish. Would not come to me. Even when my dog was around.

  • Saw this dog yesterday afternoon around Montrose & Avers, heading south, in your direction. Would not come to me either, but apparently a lot of people are trying to catch this dog.
    Post to Nextdoor.com also, if you see him again.

Found Cat

Hi my neighbor found this cat at the corner of Troy and Berteau. It's an older white/grey/brown mix, male cat. He's very friendly. They had him checked out at a vet, no chip.

  • Hi Christy, I just got off the phone with her; we're planning to reunite this evening--words can't express my gratitude! Thank you!!!

Small dog seen on 4600 block of N St. Louis by Roosevelt Highscool

The dog was very small. It was caramel colored with a cream stripe on it's back. It had what looked like a blue/purple and gray color but no tags. It was super friendly.

  • Ev

    Did the pup look like a poodle?

  • tiffanieliza 4600 block of N St. Louis Ave

    No, it looked sort of like a chihuahua.

  • There are signs up all over Horner Park looking for a lost chihuahua.

Indecent Exposure

At 6:50 this morning there was a man masturbating in the alley, right outside of the back gate at 3550 W Belle Plaine (Alley just east of Central Park, on the north side of the street). I called the police and filed a report. When I came back around to the other side of the street, he had already fled the scene. The man was driving a light gold car, but I was unable to get his license plate number.

  • Yes, I contacted the police and shared the information.

    As a renter, I do not have the authority to put a camera on the building, but that's a great idea. I did let the management company know, so perhaps that's something they may be able to help with.

  • ward greenleaf Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, Cannonball Run...

    Libby, I messaged you. Check the email you associated with this account. I complimented you on your occupation...
