Are batteries dangerous?

Both yes and no. Some are and some aren't. There are many types of batteries - therefore it can be difficult to distinguish between the environmentally dangerous and the harmless.

Hand in all batteries - and the specialists will sort them

Not all batteries are environmentally hazardous. But since it is difficult to tell the difference between them, we encourage you to hand them all over to us. 


May contain heavy metals

The batteries are divided according to which environmentally harmful substances are in them. They may contain heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and nickel. Lead, nickel, cadmium and mercury compounds appear on the Danish Environmental Protection Agency's list of undesirable substances.


They can cause cancer and cause damage to the environment and health if they are not collected and treated properly in the right facilities.
