KeepingUp with batteries age etc

I happen to have
Three different cameras that all take the same battery. That is great in itself, but it means that over the years I have accumulated about ten batteries.
My problem is keeping up with the age if each battery and knowing which ones are best and worst

How do you guys keep up? Do you put the date on all new batteries? Is there any way to check them to know which ones are charging best vs which ones do not hold a long charge and thus should be thrown out. Is there a battery checker to buy that tells more
Than current charge. Maybe one that tells the charging capacity etc


And how do you dispose of batteries. Trash under sink or recycle center or what?
