What's the proper disposal method for a Li-Ion battery? OK to just toss it in the trash?

Every Home Depot has a 'drop your old rechargable tool batteries here' box near the tool department.

Li ion batteries are not nearly as bad as ni-cad or ni-mh (nickel metal hydride) and I think you can dispose of li ions in the trash but there is usually a recycle bin at most computer stores or battery + places etc.
