How do I dispose of batteries?

Non-rechargeable household batteries: place in household garbage. Rechargeable batteries: Retailers that sell rechargeable batteries are required by law to accept from consumers and recycle these batteries. Many stores including Home Depot, Radio Shack, Staples, Best Buy and Lowe’s stores have recycling kiosks at their locations. This includes rechargeable nickel-cadmium, sealed lead, lithium ion, nickel metal hydride, any other such dry cell battery capable of being recharged and battery packs containing any of the aforementioned batteries. You should also recycle non-rechargeable button cell batteries at retail locations. They are small, thin and round, and often used in hearing aids, watches and cameras. Examples are silver oxide, mercuric oxide, lithium, and zinc-air batteries. Non-rechargeable lithium batteries are often used in computers and cameras. Vehicle Batteries: Take to a local scrap metal dealer or any vehicle battery retailer or to a gas station.
