Rechargeable and single use batteries

Many batteries contain toxic heavy metals, including lead, nickel, cadmium and mercury, which can be recovered and re-used.

Recycling batteries is important as it removes potentially harmful items from the environment.

  • Preventing heavy metals leaking into the ground which may cause soil and water pollution and endangering animal and plant life.
  • Incinerating batteries with household waste causes air pollution due to the heavy metal components in different types of batteries.
