Hi can anyone give me some advice I take all the old batteries in the house to recycle but what should I do with the ones that have already corroded should I just bag them up seperately and put them in with the others

I'm pretty sure that all types of battery are taken by the recyclers.

The ones to watch are the small lithium button batteries. Wrap a bit of sellotape around these before putting them into the box you use to store them before taking for recycling - because of their design they can short in contact with each other and I know at least one reclycling company issued an instruction to do this.

Yes. The flat, disk-shaped, button-like buttons.
