Today I have given up batteries. I will, of course, use what remains in the house until they are finally dead and then appropriately recycle them, but I will no longer buy any nonrechargeable batteries from this point forward. I already have a recharger and a number of rechargeable batteries on hand. So it’s a small start.
Also when my other electronic batteries are no longer useful, I’ll recycle these too with the help of information at BatteryRecycling.com. For other recycling needs, I’ll refer to my local government’s list.
