Battery disposal

How do you get rid of your old batteries? I’ve been dropping them in a little bottle when they die. We don’t have any kids or pets to worry about, but I’m wondering what is the best (read environmentally friendly) way to get rid of them.

I take mine to a local battery store, which is near my home. Radio Shack is an option.

Check with your garbage company. Ours will take them if they are in a sealed baggie.

We take the ones collected by our patients to Radio shack. They recycle them (or at least say they do).

Thanks. There’s a Radio Shack at the mall…maybe I’ll try them or Batteries Plus.

Do you KNOW if they are considered HAZMAT?
