From http://ovonics.com/sol_srv/3_4_battery_sol/battery_sol.htm

Ovonic™ NiMH batteries store over twice as much energy as standard nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) or lead-acid batteries of equivalent weight. Additionally, Ovonic NiMH batteries have high power, long cycle life, are maintenance free, and have no memory effect; they do not contain cadmium or lead — both environmentally hazardous substances.


And from http://ovonics.com/sol_srv/3_4_battery_sol/battery_Q&A_v1_021502.htm

—How do you dispose of the batteries when they have reached their end of life?
Ovonic™ NiMH batteries are 100% recyclable and use no (lead, cadmium, or lithium) toxic materials, making them the only rechargeable batteries that can be legally disposed of in a landfill. There are several battery disposal facilities that we can recommend.
