Instructions for taking back spent batteries
According to the battery law (BattG), batteries must not be disposed of with household waste.
You are therefore legally obliged to return used batteries. As a distributor of batteries, we are obliged to take back used batteries (with the exception of products with built-in used batteries). Our obligation to take back used batteries is limited to used batteries of the type that we carry or have carried in our range as new batteries and to the quantity that end users usually discard.
Used batteries can therefore either be returned to us with sufficient postage or delivered free of charge directly to our dispatch warehouse at the following address
Our upstream supplier has fulfilled its obligation to report to the Federal Environment Agency.

Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out dustbin. This means that the batteries must not be disposed of in the household waste. Batteries containing harmful substances are specially marked with chemical symbols. Batteries containing more than 0.0005% mercury by weight, more than 0.002% cadmium by weight or more than 0.004% lead by weight have the chemical designation of the respective pollutant under the dustbin symbol - where "Cd" stands for cadmium, "Pb" for lead, and "Hg" for mercury.
