2. Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out bin. This symbol indicates that batteries should not be disposed of with household waste. For batteries containing more than 0.0005% by mass of mercury, more than 0.002% by mass of cadmium or more than 0.004% by mass of lead, the garbage-ton symbol indicates the chemical name of the pollutant used - "cd" is cadmium, "Pb" stands for lead, and "Hg" for mercury.
