2. Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are labelled with a crossed-out refuse bin (see below). This symbol indicates that batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. If batteries contain more than 0.0005% by weight of mercury, more than 0.002% by mass of cadmium or more than 0.004% by weight of lead, the chemical name of the particular pollutant used appears below the refuse bin, where ‘Cd’ stands for cadmium, ‘Pb’ stands for lead and ‘Hg’ stands for mercury.

Safe and proper disposal of batteries
