Recycling is good but it's vital that batteries are removable and a compatible replacement can be fitted, as the life of the rest of the bike is likely to be many times that of a battery. Too many items with internal Li-ion batteries have to be disposed of once the battery dies, because although the battery can be removed you can't put another in.
