Harvesting 18650 Lithium Cells

With a Dutchess County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day coming up, I’ve been harvesting usable lithium cells from a variety of old batteries:

The pile of 18650 3P blocks over on the right are some obviously corroded deaders and the lowest performers from these tests:

I doubt they’ll get recycled, as there’s entirely too much overhead involved in dismantling boxes full of cells like these, but I hope they’ll get a decent burial somewhere.
