Notes on battery disposal
Note: Since our shipments may contain batteries and accumulators, we are obliged to inform you of the following due to the Battery Act (BattG):
Batteries and rechargeable batteries may not be disposed of in the household waste; you are legally obliged to return used batteries and rechargeable batteries. Old batteries can contain pollutants which, if not properly stored or disposed of, can damage the environment or your health. But batteries also contain important raw materials such as B. iron, zinc, manganese or nickel and can be recycled. You can either return the batteries to us after use or return them free of charge in the immediate vicinity (e.g. in stores or in communal collection points or in our dispatch warehouse). The sale in sales outlets is limited to the amount customary for end users as well as those old batteries that the distributor carries or has carried as new batteries in its range.
The symbol with the crossed out wheelie bin means that you are not allowed to dispose of batteries and accumulators in the household waste. Under this symbol you will also find the following symbols with the following meanings:
Pb: battery contains lead
Cd: Battery contains cadmium
Hg: battery contains mercury
