Why does this stereo mini to RCA adapter have a obscure image icon that indicates hazardous waste?

I have a stereo mini to RCA adapter cord that gave out and before tossing it in the trash I noticed this teeny-weeny sticker on one end. All that is on the sticker is an image of a trash receptacle with a circle and a line through it. Very small, very hard to see.
I scanned it and you can see the image here
What is in this cord that I should be so worried about and how shall I dispose of it safely?
