Symbols on Batteries

This recycling symbol is very similar to the electrical items recycling symbol, but does not have a bar at the bottom of the crossed out wheeled bin.
This symbol is used to support the Battery Directive which became part of UK law in 2008.
Batteries must be labelled with the crossed out wheeled bin symbols (shown below) to help consumers choose batteries and recycle them:
Cd, Hg and Pb underneath the wheelie bin symbol shows whether the battery contains, cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg) or lead (Pb).
