Can anyone tell me where I can take regular batteries to recycle? I have a bunch and don't know where to take them. I live in OKC.

Is there an Ikea near you? I saw a box for CF lightbulb and battery recycling at the one near us when I was there a week or so ago.

Check out your local schools. Our dc's school recycles batteries, foil, cardboard, etc.

The website earth911.org has a list of places that will recycle in your area. Radio Shack's supposedly accept them as well.

Check with your city or county to see if they have a household waste disposal service. You should be able to dispose of used batteries as well as any other nasties that shouldn't really go in the landfill. We just took some stuff today to the city maintenace yard to be disposed of and we were told that there is a new regulation that you have to tape the ends of each battery with masking tape. Not sure if that is just a local thing or what, we're in California.
