Batteries that are disposed of in household waste can cause fires, which annually results in considerable costs for society.
Batteries or electrical and electronic equipment and devices with built-in batteries must not be disposed of in household waste or in source sorted waste or refuse. This must be delivered in stores that sell the same types of product or devices, regardless of brand.
Grocery stores accept the most common batteries, while electronics stores also accept electrical products.
You can also deliver batteries and electrical products and devices at your nearest recycling station. Ask the operator if you are in doubt about where to dispose of the items at the recycling station.
If you have a sorting container, you can use it for used batteries. You can also collect smaller batteries in a jam jar with a lid. You reduce the risk of the batteries catching fire by taping over the poles of the batteries.
