In the past I've always had the vendor take care of my spent alarm batteries. No return, but no headache either. The last couple years I have not been able to do that so the pile is getting pretty big. I stopped by a local recycler and asked if they were interested in paying for them. Yep.

you guys get rid of your old batteries?
There used to be a guy who would pickup car batteries listed on Craigslist, but I haven't seen him on for a while. Still, figured it couldn't hurt to post an add to unload them on Craigslist see if one of the scrappers would be interested in them and would pickup. Atleast if they pickup when they pay next to nothing it won't cost me money to dispose of them.
