Why is it bad to throw away old batteries?



  1. 0 Votes

    Because they are considered hazardous material. Batteries can contain heavy metals and chemicals such as mercury and lead, which are harmful to humans and the environment. If thrown away, the toxins can leak in the landfills or incinerators and find their way into the air and water, posing a threat to communities and natural habitats in the area.
