Batteries are made from various resources and chemicals. Some of these materials are toxic, while the others are valuable. When thrown away and not recycled, they most probably end up in landfills where toxic materials leak into the ground causing soil and water pollution or might get incinerated with other domestic waste causing air pollution.
