Battery law information

Our shipments may contain batteries and accumulators. According to § 18 of the battery law (BattG) we are obliged to point out the following:

Batteries and rechargeable batteries may not be disposed of in household waste. 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 zinc, manganese, iron 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.

Batteries and accumulators containing pollutants are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out wheeled bin and the chemical name of the pollutant.
