Walkie-Talkie Rechargeable batteries and Toxins
In the case of Ni-MH and Ni-Cad batteries, they contain toxins that can be harmful and have a serious environmental impact if they enter into the solid waste stream. Cadmium can escape from the battery and cause both environmental and health issues. Ni-MH batteries have mild toxins and in certain countries, it is illegal to dispose of them in the trash. With Li-ion batteries, the metals used in their manufacture are not intrinsically hazardous, but there is a significant problem with the sheer number of them that end up every year in landfills.
