Research and Analysis Summary
 
- There is always some amount of power left in these dead batteries. Its electricity capacity is never zero          when it becomes 'dead' for usage.
 
- Existing publicity campaign in Hong Kong; collect rechargeable batteries, as well as electrical appliances,       computers, compact fluorescent lamps and fluorescent tubes. The vehicle visits a different districts weekly.

- Recycling dead disposable batteries is a very expensive activity , hence recycling is generally practised in     very developed nations only. In nations such as Hong Kong, these dead battries finally find their way to land       fills causing soil pollution.
