In connection with the sale of batteries or accumulators, or when devices containing batteries or accumulators are supplied, we are obliged by the Battery Act to inform you of the following:

You must not dispose of batteries in household waste. As an end user, you are legally obliged to return used batteries properly. After use, you can return batteries free of charge to the shop operator, to municipal collection points or to retailers. If you send batteries back to the shop operator, they will reimburse you for the return shipping. You can find the exact return address in the imprint of the respective shop.

Batteries that contain harmful substances are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out trash can. This means that you do not have to dispose of such batteries with normal household waste, but rather return them professionally.

Here are the labels for the pollutant content in batteries:
  • Pb: The battery contains more than 0.004 percent lead based on the total mass.
  • Cd: The battery contains more than 0.002 percent cadmium based on the total mass.
  • Hg: The battery contains more than 0.0005 percent mercury based on the total mass.
