2. Meaning of the different battery symbols
Generally speaking any batteries are marked with a crossed out rubbish bin ( see below ). This symbol indicates that batteries do not belong into the household waste bin. Batteries which contain more than 0.0005% Mercury, more than 0.002% Cadmium or more than 0.004% Lead show the chemical signs for these 3 different heavy metals. Definitions: Hg for Mercury, Cd for Cadmium and Pb for Lead.
