In your part of the world, how do you deal with it? I guess this could also relate to old and broken radios? Do you have a recycling system for them?

I know. I am in the process of replacing a heap of mobiles here at work due to the batteries losing charge quickly... It is sad to see how much ewaste we produce these days.

Add to this cell phones these days are 99% with the battery builtin, you can't even replace them.

I dislike radios that 'deviate' from the AA battery 'standard', but if your radio has a USB port for charging, I've been using Dollar Store cellphone battery banks. They work a treat and last a long time.
