How do I dispose of batteries the green way??? Answered

I've always heard that batteries are really bad to put in a landfill... But I was wondering how/where to throw them away or recycle them.


The best thing to do is to collect them and some supermarkets will pay for your old ones.

So far, only the rechargeable type batteries are accepted at some stores. Home Depot will take ni-cad batteries from tools, Staples will take electronic batteries like from cell phones. Car batteries go back to the auto store. Regular one use batteries still end up in the garbage.
