Try a Google search. According to this
batteries cannot be recycled. I also noted that many jurisdictions
require that batteries containing lithium be delivered to a
hazardous-waste disposal facility. The risk, I believe, is fire.
Lithium may burst into flame under contact with moisture. (Lithium
batteries may not be transported as cargo on passenger aircraft, but
may be used in electronic devices in the passenger compartment). There
is a possibility that, if the batteries are completely spent, the
elemental lithium that they contained has been converted to a less
reactive compound. Lithium is also a toxin.
In short, treat as hazardous waste.
