Good morning all
I’ve been given the job of fixing a friend’s mid 2009 13" plastic MacBook.
The battery has swollen to the extent of pushing the left side of the trackpad out of the casing.
I’m ordering a new battery from Macfixit and I know how to replace it BUT I don’t know what to do with the old battery.
I know they need to be handled with care and can’t be disposed of in the garbage. Does anyone know where I can get rid of it? I’ve checked recycling depots and most will accept “ordinary” types, but make no mention of swollen lithium ion batteries.
I’m in Melbourne (Cheltenham area). If anyone knows of a place where I can get rid of the thing, can you please let me know?
Thanks for any and all suggestions
