anyone know of a store that accepts batteries for recycling/disposal?

they used to have a bin at ikea, but they don't anymore. i really don't feel like saving up a million batteries for the hazardous waste day at the dump...... i want to find a store i can just drop them off whenever. i am talking about regular alkaline batteries.... not rechargable or cell phone batteries btw. thanks

  • i'm pretty sure best buy does, check lowes or home depot too. probably a cellphone supplier, any of them, would be a good bet.

  • We have a battery wholesale place in my city- they also specialize in car batteries- but take all kinds- so you may want to check a place like that! God bless you for caring about our environment.

  • My Radio Shack around the corner from my house used to take them. Now they only take rechargeable/cellphone batteries.
