The law varies. Here in my town...

In our recycling system, there is no mention of batteries. What is the proper disposal of Alkaline, and of Li-oN, They both say, "DISPOSE OF PROPERLY" and "KEEP OUT OF FIRE" but our city (311) number does not know, and Dept. of Sanitation can not be reached. I'm in New York (shouldn't matter) but what guidelines should we follow? I'M trying to follow the law. Does any one know? Would you be kind enough to tell me?

Sorry, Joe, but the law varies wildly from area to area.

Here, in one of the western suburbs of Detroit, we're supposed to place any sort of batteries (NiCad, alkaline, AA lithium, rechargeable lithium, doesn't matter) in a clear plastic bag in the red recycleables bin with the juice bottles and paper waste.
