Single-use batteries, or dry-cell batteries, are considered hazardous waste since they contain toxic heavy metals and acids that can pollute the environment when disposed of in a landfill. The most common types are alkaline and zinc carbon batteries often used in flashlights and battery-operated toys. Once the power source has been drained, these batteries must be disposed of properly.
