I hope you are making use of the newly introduced kerbside collection of batteries.
All you have to do on recycling collection day is put your batteries in a see-through plastic bag on top of your red wheelie bin. The refuse lorries now have a container on the side specially for batteries.
Remember, the chemicals in batteries are extremely bad for the environment. That is why the Conservative-led Council is making it easier for you to do the right thing and stop batteries going into landfill.
