Battery Law Notices
Note according to battery law
Since our shipments may contain batteries and rechargeable batteries, we are obliged by the battery law (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 can 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 the trade or at municipal collection points or in our dispatch warehouse). The delivery to sales points is limited to the usual quantities for end users and to used batteries that the distributor carries or has carried as new batteries in his range.
The sign with the crossed-out wheeled bin means that you may not dispose of batteries and accumulators in household waste.
Below this sign you will find additional symbols with the following meaning:
Pb: Battery contains lead
Cd: Battery contains Cadmium
Hg: battery contains mercury
