Disposal instructions for old batteries

Since our shipments may contain batteries and accumulators, we are obliged under the Battery Act (BattG) to inform you of the following: Batteries and accumulators must not be disposed of with household waste, you are legally obliged to return used batteries and accumulators. Old batteries can contain harmful substances that can damage the environment or your health if not stored or disposed of properly. Batteries also contain important raw materials such as e.g. B. iron, zinc, manganese or nickel and can be recycled. You can either send the batteries back to us after use or return them free of charge in the immediate vicinity (e.g. in stores or in municipal collection points or in our dispatch warehouse). The sale at sales outlets is limited to the usual amount for end users and to those old batteries that the distributor has or has had as new batteries in his range. The sign with the crossed-out wheeled bin means that batteries and accumulators may not be disposed of with household waste. Under this sign you will also find the following symbols with the following meaning:

Pb: Battery contains lead
Cd: Battery contains cadmium
Hg: Battery contains mercury
