Notes on battery disposal
In connection with the sale of batteries or rechargeable batteries or with the delivery of devices containing batteries or rechargeable batteries, we are obliged to inform you of the following in accordance with the German Battery Act (BattG):
Batteries may not be disposed of in household waste. You are obliged to return used batteries as the end user. You can return them after use at the point of sale or in its immediate vicinity (for example at municipal collection points or in the trade) free of charge. You can also return the batteries supplied by us after use to the following address or hand them in on site:
Luxemburger Str. 6
Batteries or accumulators containing harmful substances are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out wheeled bin
Near the dustbin symbol is the chemical name of the pollutant. Cd stands for cadmium, Pb for lead and Hg for mercury.
Pb: = battery contains more than 0.004 mass per cent lead
Cd = Battery contains more than 0.002 mass percent cadmium
Hg = battery contains more than 0.0005 mass percent of mercury.
You will also find this information again in the manufacturer's operating instructions.
Old electrical appliances do not belong in household waste
Since 24 March 2006, old electrical appliances may not be disposed of with household waste. The regulation affects all electronic and electrical appliances, from electric toothbrushes to home tanning beds, from washing machines to digital cameras, regardless of age. It also covers light bulbs, fluorescent tubes and energy-saving lamps.
The appliances are taken back free of charge by towns and municipalities. They are taken back at collection points or even offered for collection. As a rule, existing collection systems (e.g. recycling centres, bulky waste collection) are used.
The environment concerns all of us and you make an important contribution to environmental protection with the correct disposal.
