Here is the number and web address to make an appt for the dropoff...408-299-7300...The County of Santa Clara - County of Santa Clara Household Hazardous Waste Program Home. Just click on "Make An Appointment". Good for you that you want to dispose of it properly. Many would just dump it somewhere.

You really couldn't find this by searching? Most auto parts stores take them:

Autozone: In-Store Services | In Our Stores | AutoZone.com
O'Reilly: Used Oil, Oil Filter & Battery Recycling
Pep Boys: DIY Battery, DIY Car Battery, Do It Yourself Battery | Pep Boys

Sunnyvale, Mountain View, and Palo Alto residents can take them to the SMaRT station: City of Sunnyvale: SMaRT Station

Umm Costco. Check your receipt. They charge you extra 5 to 10 dollars when you purchase and will refund it back to you when you bring in the old battery.

Costco probably charged a $9 or so core fee.

If you take the old battery back to Costco with receipt, they will give you back the $9 or so core fee.
