    Where to recycle batteries please

    I would like to do the rigt thing
    We do not want cash but rather than old AA batteries I 've now a bag full would like them to go the right place.

    I'm sure you all know that just putting in normal refuse ends in landfill leaches nto the environment.

    I know Thais don't care asked Poo Yais and there is no where here.
    Is ther a place in MAe Sai,C Rai or even C mai where I could take them next month.

    I also have a useable car battery same issue,does it have any value to a garage for theplates or even knobs,I am happy to give it them but fear they'll pour the acid into the klong to get the copper?

    If You have an addres tel number great as I dont wantto take dirty old car battery to C Mai and ind closed/holiday etc

    I'll recharge the glas of first to find a non acidic solution

    Plan B pour into specimen bottle take to Croydon tell Slap its Yadong
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    You can give your car battery to any battery retailer, might even get 1-200 for it, they'll either replace duff bits for resale or strip it down for usable parts and dispose of the rest probably with nil to zero due diligence.
