GERMAN BATTERY ACT
Information as per German Battery Act
As our consignments may contain batteries and rechargeable batteries, we are obliged under the German Battery Act (BattG) to draw your attention to the following: Batteries and rechargeable batteries may not be disposed of in household waste. You are legally obliged to return used batteries and rechargeable batteries. Used batteries can contain harmful substances that can harm the environment or your health if not stored or disposed of properly. But batteries also contain important raw materials such as iron, zinc, manganese or nickel and can be utilised. After use, you can either return the batteries to us or return them free of charge in the immediate vicinity (e.g. in shops or municipal collection points or in our dispatch warehouse).
Retail sales are limited to the usual quantities for end-users and to those used batteries that the distributor carries or has carried as new batteries in its range.
The sign with the crossed-out dustbin means that you must not dispose of batteries and rechargeable batteries in 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
