Battery law information
Since our shipments may contain batteries and rechargeable batteries, we are required by the Battery Act (BattG) to inform you of the following: Batteries and rechargeable batteries may not be disposed of in household waste, but you are legally obliged to return used batteries and rechargeable batteries. Used batteries may contain harmful substances that can damage the environment or your health if not stored or disposed of properly. However, batteries also contain important raw materials such as 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 shops or municipal collection points or in our dispatch warehouse). The delivery at sales points is limited to the usual quantities for end users as well as such used batteries that the distributor carries or has carried as new batteries in its product range.
The sign with the crossed-out garbage can means that you must not dispose of batteries and rechargeable batteries in the household garbage. 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
