I find old abandoned lead batteries and take them to the scrap yard and get 15 cents a pound, cant do that with Lithium.
Took a few moments of googling to find this:Rechargeable Batteries near Ottawa, ON, Canada - Recycling Centers - Typical places: Staples, RadioShack, Lowes, Best Buy, Home Depot.

If it's a car battery (e.g. from an EV), then either the dealership / auto shop that is replacing the battery will take care of it, or if you buy your own replacement then the vendor you buy from will recycle the old ones.

Not that hard, really.
