Notes on battery disposal

In relation to the sale of batteries or rechargeable batteries or the supply of equipment containing batteries or rechargeable batteries, we are obliged to inform you of the following:

Batteries may not be disposed of in household waste.

As the end user, you are legally obliged to dispose of used batteries properly. After use, you can return batteries free of charge to the point of sale or in your immediate vicinity (e.g. to municipal collection points or retailers). You can also return used batteries to us by post.

Batteries or rechargeable batteries containing harmful substances are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out waste bin. Near the dustbin symbol is the chemical name of the pollutant:

"Cd" stands for cadmium,
"Pb" for lead and
"Hg" for mercury.
