Batteries and our
other products need to be disposed of carefully as we seek to take good
care of the environment we live in. The way in which this is achieved
varies vastly and the best way of finding out what to do is to ask the retailer
or distributor from which you bought the product. Each country has different
regulations in place on how to dispose of your batteries. We advise you to contact
your local authorities to establish the safe disposal route for our products in
The information below
provides an indication of how such things operate in Europe and North America.
As our primary batteries
are environmentally friendly, they respect federal regulations in the US such that they can be discarded with
your household waste products.
In Canada and the
USA an initiative exists which facilitates the recycling of rechargeable
batteries. More details can be found on the Call2Recycle website.
In the EU a battery
directive operates which means that retailers have a duty to provide
collection points for batteries which can then be recycled. Local
authorities may also provide a service covering their area. You are very
strongly advised to make use of this service.
Other European Regulations
containing electronic parts, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
regulation applies. This attempts to ensure that this equipment is also
recycled in the best possible way. Normally our products will meet one or
other of these regulations.
