Not sure if you are serious. Solar and wind will never be sufficient let alone over capacity. Germany and Netherlands are already discovering this.
Do not repeat pleasant thoughts from your national or local media, read what physicists say about energy density of various sources.
Proportion of electricity being generated by renewables in 2019 (source);

Switzerland - 57%
Germany - 40%
Austria - 74%
UK - 37%
Denmark - 77%
Spain - 37%
Portugal - 51%
Norway - 97%
Sweden - 58%

Not exactly nothing figures, all have increased massively in recent years and the pace of adoption of renewables has also increased rapidly. Germany for example have just announced 40 GW of new offshore wind developments.

As far as projected battery waste and recyclability please read on what scientists and engineers are saying: https://cen.acs.org/materials/energy...lithium/97/i28
I presume as usual you didn't read your own link - you realise that article is in favour of recycling? Yes, there's nowhere enough being done at the moment but that doesn't mean it has to stay that way. From the summary...:

The batteries are valuable and recyclable
