Go to earth911.com and type in - single use batteries and your zip code. It should give you facilities close to you to dispose of them.
Good luck, grtdnm
Heard about this on our local news channel.
In our town, we have two large item or hazardous item pickups per year from the garbage company. That is when they encourage the throw away of batteries.
Best Buy stores have bins right inside the front door for batteries and other recyclable items.
Here's info from the city of Tampa website:
Batteries: Button and nickel cadmium batteries from cell phones etc should be taken to a participating store such as Radio Shack, Target, Home Depot etc., or to a Household Chemical Collection event.
You could call one of the stores to make sure they actually take them.
