2. Meaning of battery symbols


Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out wheeled bin (see below). This symbol indicates that batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. For batteries that contain more than 0.0005% mercury by weight, more than 0.002% cadmium by weight, or more than 0.004% lead by weight, the chemical symbol for the specific pollutant used is displayed below the crossed-out bin symbol. “Cd” stands for cadmium, “Pb” stands for lead, and “Hg” stands for mercury.
