On behalf of a friend...

"... have you ever found somewhere to send these batteries (eg from a laptop) for recycling. The net advice I can find, is contact your local authority (no facilities here, or in most places I don't think) or send back to the manufacturer (which might work as pressure if everybody did it, but I suspect us sending a single battery back will probably lead to it being dumped in the bin... which defeats the object)."

Clues/comments, anyone?

Producers of such "future waste" are supposed to take it back.

The acronym of the Euro directive is something like WEEE - yep, Google that.

My local dump/comunity recyling centre has a bin marked for batteries but i don't know what happens to them. Hopefully they are recyled. But if they are thrown away at least that means they are treated sepreately as hazardpus and not just part of the genral waste stream.
