Whole Foods typically has a drop box in the front of the store near the registers ( any whole foods) for batteries.

HOUSEHOLD BATTERIES - Drop off Tewksbury Public Library 300 Chandler Street – Recycling Collection Center Rechargeable batteries, alkaline batteries, nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride, lithium ion, nickel zinc, small sealed lead batteries, cellphones.

You can also hold for Zero Waste Day in September. There is a gentleman from Andover who collects all types of old batteries and gets them handled responsibly.
The Tewksbury trash/recycling calendar has lots of good information on it for other items as well. Thanks for asking how to dispose of items properly!
