Information on the disposal of used batteries
The following notice is aimed at those who use batteries or products with built-in batteries and who no longer sell them in the form supplied to them (end users):
1. Free return of used batteries
Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obliged to return used batteries so that proper disposal can be guaranteed. You can dispose of used batteries at a municipal collection point or in local stores. We, as distributors of batteries, are also obliged to take back used batteries, whereby our obligation to take back batteries is limited to used batteries of the type that we have or have had as new batteries in our range. You can therefore either send old batteries of the aforementioned type back to us with sufficient postage or return them free of charge to our dispatch warehouse at the address given in the imprint.
2. Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed out garbage can (see below). This symbol indicates that batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. For batteries that contain more than 0.0005 percent mercury, more than 0.002 percent cadmium or more than 0.004 percent lead, there is the chemical name of the respective pollutant under the garbage can symbol - "Cd" stands for cadmium, "Pb" stands for lead, and "Hg" for mercury.
