Battery Disposal Service


Disposal instructions / old equipment return

Many items in our product range contain batteries or rechargeable batteries. Therefore, we point out in accordance with Battery Act (BattG) that batteries or rechargeable batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. As a consumer you can return used batteries free of charge at municipal collection points or at retail outlets. You can also return the batteries directly to us after use.

Disposal of Mercury-containing lamps

The use of mercury-containing lamps is completely harmless. In the case of breaking these lamps, however, very small amounts of mercury vapor can escape into the air. Due to the content of small amounts of toxic mercury, mercury-containing lamps must not be disposed of with household waste in accordance with the law.

Disposal of Batteries

Contaminated Batteries

Contaminated batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out wheelie bin. Among them is the chemical name of the pollutant: Cd or NiCd stands for cadmium, Pb for lead and Hg for mercury.
