The Whole Foods store in Raleigh does not collect any batteries. I am not sure about the other locations though.

I know the OP asked about "recycling" old batteries but if no place can be found, Wake County will accept them and dispose of them properly (hazardous waste). Drop off sites are now open 6 days per week (instead of the first Saturday of the month). I took batteries, cans of paint, motor oil, lawn and garden chemicals to them.

Another website revealed that Raleigh fire stations will accept used consumer batteries for disposal. City of Raleigh website lists station locations but not their phone numbers. I called Fire Chief's office and got a station number. The man who answered at the station said "yes", but I didn't ask about whether the program was limited to rechargeable batteries - I mentioned AAA size as an example.

I take my own trash to the dump. I took a box of used-up batteries there and they told me to throw them in with everything else. They only recycle the rechargeable types.

The one in Chapel Hill does, and the one in Durham on Broad Street recycles Brita filters as well as yogurt cups.

The dump on 1900 East Club Boulevard takes batteries, paint, etc -- hazardous household goods. The entrance comes up quickly on the left, with two signs that say "entrance." It's directly across from the water reclamation facility, so keep your eyes open when you see that.

Default Don't throw away

The Big Green Box.com They have a box available to purchase that gets filled with up to 40 lbs of any type of battery...they are located at Walgreens stores, and if you go to the website, it will tell you all the locations of one.

The issue with alkaline is there is no money to be made from recycling them, and they have trace amounts of mercury... so if you have many battereis, buy a box for yourself to keep for a year mail back. The total cost is around 60 dollars, but it's a box that gets shipped to you, included in pricing, and when its full 40 pounds later, you ship it back (included in price too). If you don't want to pay or you don't have that many just find the locations that have the boxes...
