Collecting primary cells and batteries

Collecting primary cells and batteries

Is your TV remote control out of order because its primary cells are discharged? Do you replace them with new cells and throw the old ones into the waste basket?
 
Make sure you collect primary cells and only dispose of them into special sorting containers. Let us save the environment and natural resources!
 
Primary cell is a device that converts chemical energy into direct current. It is a source of energy often used in households (in TV remote controls, electronic toys, clocks and other devices). Primary cells differ by their form, chemical composition and capacity.
 
Battery is a unit consisting of several primary cells or accumulators. Batteries power mobile phones, laptop computers, wireless electrical tools, toys and different home appliances (electric toothbrushes, razors, etc.).
 
End-of-life batteries and primary cells become waste that must be sorted and may not be disposed of with household waste. If disposed of in landfills, batteries and primary cells begin to degrade and release heavy metals such as nickel, cadmium, zinc, lead, etc. These substances may get into plants and from there into animal and human bodies and cause serious diseases.
 
In cooperation with the association, EPA, waste manager Žalvaris has set up more than 6,000 sites for the collection of batteries and primary cells. Containers for collecting them are available at all shops, schools, post offices, service stations and other public places.
