Batteries containing harmful substances are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out dustbin, similar to the symbol in the illustration above right. Below the dustbin symbol is the chemical name of the hazardous substance - in the example on the left, "Cd" stands for cadmium. "Pb" stands for lead, "Hg" for mercury.
