I still say there should be a law requiring all retailers who sell this stuff to have to provide recycling collections, free of charge, to customers who can provide proof that they bought said products at that facility...
Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowe's, and automotive stores recycle all kinds of batteries, including lithium. Auto stores take old oil with new purchase. Latex paint can be tossed once dry. Best Buy takes old electronics. Any reputable shop will help with antifreeze if you ask.
