How do I know what batteries to throw away and which ones to recycle?

    Recycling batteries is a great way to keep heavy metals (zinc, lead, nickel, manganese, cadmium, silver, mercury, etc.) out of landfills and save resources–recovered plastic and metals can be used to make new batteries. Regular flashlight batteries can be either thrown away or recycled, and rechargeable batteries should be recycled. Rechargeable batteries include Nickel Cadmium, Nickel Metal Hydride, Lithium Ion, and Small Sealed Lead, which are commonly found in cordless power tools, cellular and cordless phones, laptop computers, digital cameras, two-way radios, camcorders, and remote control toys. Non-rechargeable batteries (alkaline batteries) are not yet able to be recycled and should be disposed of in the trash.
