If it's rechargeable, it's recyclable. Look for used rechargeable batteries and old cell phones in your home that are dead or not being used any longer.  Rechargeable batteries can be found in cordless electronic products that you plug in to get recharged.
Find the recycling location nearest you and drop off your used rechargeable batteries and old cell phones.
