Battery disposal order
As an end user, you are legally obliged to return batteries for recycling. You can return these after use to any municipal collection point, or also to a shop in your area without any costs. You can also return batteries to us by post free of charge.
Batteries containing contaminants are marked with a symbol comprising a crossed out waste container and the chemical symbol (Cd, Hg or Pb) for the heavy metal contaminant. This symbol means that batteries may not be disposed of as ordinary household waste.
