Alkaline batteries are not recyclable
All rechargeable batteries are recyclable. These include Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Ion (Li-ion) and Small-Sealed Lead (Pb), (2 1/4-lbs. or less). These include rechargeable batteries from power tools, cordless and cellular telephones, laptop computers, camcorders, cameras, two-way radios and rechargeable household appliances (e.g., rechargeable hand held vacuum).

Rechargeable batteries should be placed individually in plastic bags in order to prevent short circuits and the possibility of fire.
