Batteries and rechargeable batteries containing hazardous materials are clearly marked with the symbol of a crossed-out rubbish bin. The chemical name of the pollutant can be found below the rubbish bin icon – for example "Pb" for lead, "Cd" for cadmium" and "Hg" for mercury.
You can also find this information in the documents accompanying the consignment or in the manufacturer's instruction. For more detailed information on battery law please contact the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (www.bmub.bund.de/N49471-1/) .
