The dangers of incorrect battery waste disposal

Batteries are formed of several hazardous waste materials like mercury, lead, and cadmium. When disposed of, these materials can find their way into the soil and water from landfills, which results in contamination of our environment.

What's more, these materials can be fire hazardous, which is why storage, collection and transportation must be handled with the upmost care.
