Information on the disposal of old batteries and electronic devices

The following information is aimed at those who use batteries or products with built-in batteries and no longer resell them in the form supplied to them (end users):

1. Free return of old batteries

Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obliged to return old batteries so that professional disposal can be guaranteed. You can hand in used batteries to a municipal collection point or to local retailers. As a battery distributor, we are also obliged to take back old batteries, whereby our take-back obligation is limited to old batteries of the type that we have or have had as new batteries in our range. You can therefore send old batteries of the aforementioned type back to us with sufficient postage to the following address:

2. Meaning of the battery symbols

Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out garbage can (see below). This symbol indicates that batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. For batteries that contain more than 0.0005 percent by mass of mercury, more than 0.002 percent by mass of cadmium or more than 0.004 percent by mass of lead, the chemical name of the pollutant used is located under the garbage can symbol – “Cd” stands for cadmium, “Pb ” stands for lead, and “Hg” for mercury.”

3. Disposal of old electronic devices

Every consumer is legally obliged to dispose of old devices separately from household waste and e.g. B. at the local recycling center. Electrical appliances are accepted there free of charge. This ensures that the old devices are recycled professionally and negative effects on the environment are avoided. Old batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed by the old device must be separated from it before handing them in. Electrical devices are also marked with the following symbol:
