I have dead batteries and I want to know the best way to dispose of them, ideally by recycling. Here in Argentina there is almost nowhere to take them. We just put them in the garbage.
My Spanish isn't great, but I think that on the website of this Argentinian recycling company called Silkers SA they are saying that you should:
- Check the website of the producer of the battery if they accept it back.
- Check this webpage of the city of Buenos Aires (however, this link reports "service unavailable" and "Sitio en Mantenimiento" at the time of writing)
- Check the website http://www.dondereciclo.org.ar
This last website also has a blog in Spanish on batteries. If I understand the blog correctly it says that there is a law which prohibits the use of mercury, cadmium and lead in non-rechargable batteries so they can be handled as 'normal' waste !?
Rechargable batteries on the other hand are collected in various places in Buenos Aires, but according to this map also in Rosario and Cordoba
