Instructions

Batteries contain various amounts of environmentally toxic substances: mercury, manganese, cadmium, lead, nickel and zinc. Throwing batteries away with your household waste could lead to these substances being released into the environment during incineration.

This is why the Service Hygiène has installed a special container for used batteries at every public recycling collection point. The batteries are collected are processed in an environmentally-friendly way by SUPERDRECKSKËSCHT, which has also installed used battery collection points in many schools, offices of public administrations, businesses and specialist stores.
