It’s important to keep hazardous material such as normal, everyday batteries out of landfills.
You can do that with a little research on what stores accept them. RadioShack and Office Depot are two that I know take reusable ones, as does the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation.
As far as car batteries go, check with retailers who sell them. Usually they’re good at collecting and recycling them. You definitely don’t want them to go into landfills, because of the toxic metals they contain that can leach into groundwater.
