Most everyone is on board with recycling these days. But there are some items that we know we should recycle but don’t know how or where to. And then there are others that we know we shouldn’t be throwing in the trash, but we just don’t know how to dispose of them responsibly.

Batteries are one thing that many of us throw away. Electronic waste, or e-waste, is another. And I will admit, properly disposing of these items can be perplexing. I have tried to sift through some information and pass it along to you regarding these things. What I generally do with batteries is save them until I have a bunch of old ones and then bring them to Best Buy or something like that, where they usually have a bin near the front.

But here are a few links that should help you figure out what you need to do and where you need to go:
