Anyone ever worked on a project about "safe recollection and disposal, recycling of lead-acid batteries"?

The challenge we are facing is enforcement of the regulation. The law of the land requires old, used battries to be deposited with authorised recollection, recycling agents. New battery customers are supposed to leave the old one with the retailer; the retailer is supposed to send it to the recycling agents.

However, the informal, illegal channel is still very active in collecting the batteries by offering monetary incentives to battery retailers and users.

Unsafe disposal, recycling of old batteries is a major environmental concern in Bangladesh. While a new battery for an average sedan car costs 3000 taka (local currency); the used batteries are exchanged for an amount ranging between 500-1000 taka.

How do we build awareness? How do we get the law enforcers to enforce the law?

The UK used to have a fairly good record for recycling lead/acid batteries compare with the rest of the EU.

Since the EU introduced lead/acid battery regulations the percentage recycled in the UK has dropped.
Lead acid batteries are recyled on a regular basis. This is nothing new.
