Recycling Alkaline Batteries Answered

It has always bothered me when I disposed of spent alkaline batteries ( having 3 children , can add up to a lot of batteries per year).And there are no local or state programs for recycling these types of batteries where I live. I recently found a company that recycles all types of batteries and electronic waste by mail @ a reasonable cost. They also offer a municipal program for your town.
