    There is also a buyer in North Syracuse New York paying 10 cents a pound.
    Are you talking about alkaline or cell phone batteries.

    I was curious about whether or not this was a stupid idea so I actually contacted energizer. They contacted me back, and told me the materials from used batteries aren't good enough to make new batteries. So I guess it is a stupid idea. My mistake.

    Looks like energizer changed their minds although it's only 4% for now.

    I have close to 150lbs of assorted A's, C's and D's. I always take them because i usually get other things when picking them up. There was a place in Northern Ohio that use to buy them at .05lb, but no more. I just recycle at batteries plus and other places for free.
