Remove SIM card and/or battery prior to recycling Iphone 5?

I am reading conflicting information on the Verizon site about whether to remove the SIM card and/or the battery prior to sending in old phone for recycling program. Does anyone know? The battery seems a bit challenging to remove...

Definitely remove the SIM card - that connects you to the network, and you can use it in a new phone if the size is the same.  They are free at a corporate store, and  should not be in the returned phone.

The battery can be left in - in fact, it may not be user removable.

Batteries are not user accessible on iPhone's...at least they're not suppose to be.   So yes, you can disregard the removing of the battery...
