Since our shipments may contain batteries and accumulators, we are obliged under the Battery Act (BattG) to inform you of the following:
Batteries and rechargeable batteries may not be disposed of in the household waste; instead, 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. After use, you can either return the batteries to us 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 usual quantities 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 garbage can means that batteries and rechargeable batteries are not allowed to be disposed of with household waste. Under this symbol you will also find the following symbols with the following meanings:
- Cd: Battery contains cadmium
- Hg: Battery contains mercury
- Pb: Battery contains lead
