Recycling batteries

I had some free time this morn so I checked out battery recyclers listed on Earth911.com. The best one I found was Batteryrecycling.com. For $24.95, they'll send you (free shipping!) an iRecycle Kit 5.

According to the online description, "The iRecycle Kit is a complete battery and handheld electronics recycling kit for household. Includes UN approved collection box, pre-paid shipping and pre-paid recycling–everything you need to begin recycling today. Materials accepted include all types of dry-cell batteries including AA, AAA, C, D, power tool, laptop, cellphone, camera batteries and others, plus all handheld electronics such cellphones, iPods, PDAs and more. Container holds approximately six month's to one year’s worth of batteries for an average household."

UPDATE FEBRUARY 20, 2011– My kit arrived yesterday, and I started filling it up!

You're welcome, John! I emailed the company today, asking about single-use batteries that are leaking and whether I can ship them or not. Stay tuned.
