Manufacturers and importers of batteries and products that contain batteries are responsible for their collection and recycling. IBM's collection and recycling obligation for batteries is handled by "Bebat".
Collection points consist of both retail outlets where batteries are sold and municipal collection points. Today, more then 800 companies are registered with Bebat to comply with these environmental regulations.
