The battery life on my laptop recently suddenly declined to about 5-10 minutes, so I replaced it, however now I'm not sure what to do with the old one.

Being environmentally concious, I'm aware that I'm not supposed to just chuck it in the bin, but despite the recycling icon on it, I don't think I can just put it in my household recycling either (can I?).

From Googling, I've seen that Tesco recycle laptop batteries - but only at certain stores. They haven't had it easy to find out which ones, but a list I eventually managed to find doesn't contain any of my local ones.

Are there any other places I can take it? Any other chains of store (PC World perhaps?) that would take it? Or any online services where I could just post it off?
