After discussions with senior management in the Division of Research Safety we have decided that we (DRS) will continue to recommend trash disposal of alkaline batteries until the campus decides to adopt an alternate policy. We do not receive that many questions regarding the proper disposal of alkaline batteries from campus and we have removed all but two references regarding the disposal of the alkaline batteries from the DRS website.
This is an interesting study from MIT which you may already be aware of: http://www.epbaeurope.net/documents/NEMA_alkalinelca2011.pdf
