How did I not know that we're supposed to recycle batteries? It makes total sense that we don't want the toxins in batteries, leaching into the soil. I am happy to say we don't use a lot of items that require batteries as we try to stay away from items that require them (but boy, let me tell you, baby items take a ton of batteries! Glad we are past that stage).
Have no fear, through the powers of google, I found Call2Recycle and found many places in my area that take dead batteries and MNN.com has a great guide to recycling batteries. Yay for the interwebs.
Now, recycle those batteries!
