People use an increasing number of batteries in their daily lives. If we counted them we would quickly find that the average individual owns about three button-shaped batteries and approximately twenty normal (A, AA, AAA, C, D, 9V ...) batteries. Compared to the small batteries, car batteries have a slightly longer life span, but eventually they also become waste.
Some waste batteries are considered hazardous waste because they contain heavy metals, which is why they do not belong into mixed municipal waste.
Waste batteries and car batteries can be disposed of:
- Into special Zeos, d.o.o. containers that can be found at retail stores;
- To the public service provider - separated from other collected fractions;
- Directly to the collector of waste batteries and car batteries.
