Information on the disposal of HBC batteries.
The “crossed-out bin“ symbol indicates that you are legally obliged to dispose of the marked products separately from unsorted municipal waste.
They may not be discarded with the household waste.
Avoid improper disposal by using a special collection or return point.
Your contact at HBC will be pleased to take charge of disposal.
Please avoid littering public spaces by disposing of batteries correctly rather than carelessly leaving them behind.
Batteries may contain hazardous chemical substances which pollute the environment and pose a threat to human and animal health.
Lithium-containing batteries have to be handled with special care since they are highly flammable and improper handling can result in fire.
Batteries and accumulators which can be removed non-destructively from electrical equipment must be disposed of separately from the waste equipment.
