Default LiFe batteries

What's the proper procedure for getting rid of used up LiFe batteries such as those used in receiver packs?

The radio shack and batteries plus+ dispose of (send to recycle?) old batteries here. May try calling your local store and see if they do as well.

Same procedure as LiPo disposal, discharge it to 0 volts then you can toss it. There are many ways to do so, salt water, resistor, light bulb...

I thought LiFe would be different than the Lipos. Thanks.

Nicer than me, I just dump my stuff in the bin and walk away.
