When discarding a battery pack, contact your local waste disposal provider regarding local restrictions on the disposal or recycling of batteries.
You can check for available specific instructions for your country by going to HP's Product return & recycling webpage, selecting your country from the dropdown menu and checking if "Batteries from notebooks and smartphones" option is available there.
