Meaning of the battery symbols

Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out waste bin. This symbol indicates that batteries must not be placed in household waste. In the case of batteries containing more than 0.0005 weight percent mercury, more than 0.002 weight percent cadmium or more than 0.004 weight percent lead, the chemical name of the pollutant used is underneath the garbage bin symbol - where "Cd" stands for cadmium,"Pb" stands for lead, and "Hg" for mercury.
