Recycle those batteries

While you are out taking old medications to the take-back sight....drop off those batteries you've got sitting around too. If you are anything like us you have a small box somewhere of used batteries or old rechargeable that just aren't well, charging anymore.

Join Call2Recycle in the challenge to recycle 1 million pounds of batteries by October 1st. Their site lets you plug in and find places to recycle them - turns out my own local Ace and Radio Shack - withing walking distance of my house both offer a place for me to take my batteries to be recycled. Yea!

Don't want to go out to recycle stuff - Earth911 has a whole list of mail-back options here and even list options for light bulbs, toner, and other items as well.
