Batteries should be disposed of according to Local, State or Federal law. It is recommended that they be taken to a hazardous waste collection facility. Contact your local city or county waste department to see what the requirements are for hazardous waste disposal in your area.
To encourage the proper disposal of electronic products and batteries, Sony has partnered with IMS Electronics Recycling, Inc. to offer free recycling of unwanted Sony® products. For more information, visit the Sony recycle website.
