So you just replaced the batteries in your flashlight. You recall that somewhere you read how to dispose of the old ones. Bookmark this website and you’ll never again be left clueless.
Excerpted from Yahoo
TWICE magazine offers a comprehensive guide to the disposal of virtually every type of battery on the market, available here. It’s organized by the basic type of battery — alkaline, button, Ni-Cad, etc. — and includes examples of where each of these batteries are used, alternate names, and so on. (Unfortunately the HTML on the page is a little messed up, causing the bullet point sections to be nested; try to ignore this.)
