As our deliveries may include batteries and rechargeable batteries, we are obliged according to the German Batteries Act (Batteriegesetz/BattG) to inform you of the following:
Information About the Batteries Act in Germany
Batteries and rechargeable batteries must not be disposed of in household waste; you are legally obliged to return used batteries and rechargeable batteries.
Used batteries may contain hazardous substances that can damage the environment or your health if not stored or disposed of correctly. However, batteries also contain 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 to collection points nearby (e.g., stores or local collection points or our dispatch warehouse). The return of batteries to retail outlets is limited to normal quantities for end-users and to those batteries that the distributor carries or has carried as new batteries in its product range.
The symbol of a crossed-out dustbin indicates that batteries and accumulators must not be discarded in the household waste.
Below this symbol, you will additionally find the following symbols with the meaning:
Pb: Battery contains lead
