I know this sounds like a dull topic, but I’m really happy with this clever solution.
You and I both know how terrible it is to throw batteries in the garbage. They have corrosive metals that are awful for the environment. In my town they suggest you take them to the Eco-Centre. But what to do with the batteries before you get to the recycling depot?
Just put them in your Dead Battery can. I have to admit I borrowed this idea from something I saw on the Container Store website. I just took a hot chocolate container (perfect size, and it has a red lid) and then I made a simple paper label. The can holds quite a few batteries and you’ll never get the dead ones mixed up with the new ones!
