Information on the disposal of used batteries

Reporting Requirement according to Battery Ordinance

The following information is intended for those who use batteries or products containing batteries and do not resell them in the form they were supplied (end user):

1. Free take-back of used batteries

Batteries must not be disposed of with the household waste. You are legally obliged to return used batteries for proper disposal. You can dispose of used batteries at a municipal collection point or in the local trade. As a distributor of batteries, we are obliged to take back waste batteries. Our take-back obligation shall, however, be restricted to waste batteries of the same type as new batteries carried by us as part of our product range. You can return batteries of the aforementioned type to us after usage. Please make sure you have attached sufficient postage to the package and bring or send it to the following address:

2. Battery marking

Batteries are marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. This symbol is intended to indicate that batteries must be disposed of separately from other household waste. For batteries containing more than 0.005 % of mercury by weight, more than 0.002 of cadmium by weight or more than 0.004 of lead by weight, the chemical designation of the respective pollutant (for example, "Cd" for cadmium, "Pb" for lead and "Hg" for mercury) is printed beneath the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.

Crossed-out wheeled bin symbol

Pb = Batteries/Accumulators containing lead

Cd = Batteries/Accumulators containing cadmium

Hg = Batteries/Accumulators containing mercury
