How to Recycle?

  • Remove the rechargeable battery from the equipment.
  • For safety reason, cover the battery terminal with masking tape to prevent contact between terminals or other metal surfaces during storage and transport.
  • Do not put damaged rechargeable batteries into the collection boxes. For batteries that are vulnerable to damage, put them in plastic bag (e.g. reuse the packaging of new batteries) and seal them with adhesive tape before deposit.
  • Bring the battery to a Collection Point for recycling. For operational considerations, the collection box may not be able to be placed in a prominent location of a Collection Point. Please approach the front-line staff or the manager of the respective Collection Point for details.
