It is illegal for batteries to go in any of your household bins. Batteries are a fire risk and not only are they toxic but they also contain valuable material that can only be recovered by a specialist processor.
Other recycling options: Batteries should be taken to a Household Waste Recycling Centre, or alternatively, many shops which sell batteries offer facilities to return them for recycling.
