    Default Disposing of old batteries 24/7

    Well, I was doing some research on the state of motorcycle batteries and stumbled into this while I was looking at Exide batteries. Apparently Exide Technology in Frisco has a box out front 24/7 to drop off old batteries.

    Recycle your old battery!!

    Exide Technologies has a collection box at the front gate.
    Drop off any used auto, mower, marine or motorcycle battery 24 hours a day.

    Do your share, show you care - RECYCLE!!!!
    (Cadmium cells not accepted. Spent lead acid cells only.)

    I always just drop mine by the back door of Autozone (where they stack them up for the battery pick-up already).

    Until recently, recyclers would give you $10.0 per car, $5.00 per motorcycle/lawn tractor and $20.00+ for semi-tractor batteris.

    Don't you need to pay more for the new battery if you don't trade the old one in?? Anywhere I have purchased a battery (Autozone, Walmart, etc.) the price would be higher if I didn't give them the old battery...

    Well..... the playground would do IF you removed the caps from the cells before dropping off.

    The wildlife preserve is just plain silly. You would have to drive all that way out there and all the way back adding god knows how much carbon into the atmosphere. Must be eco friendly now!

    Yeah, me too. They're over next to the 20 or so gallons of used motor oil and kerosene.
