The following notice is aimed at those who use batteries or products with built-in batteries and no longer resell them in the form supplied to them (end users):
1. Free take-back of old batteries
Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obliged to return old batteries so that professional disposal can be guaranteed. You can hand in used batteries to a municipal collection point or to local retailers. As a battery distributor, we are also obliged to take back old batteries, whereby our take-back obligation is limited to old batteries of the type that we have or have had as new batteries in our range. You can therefore either return old batteries of the aforementioned type to us with sufficient postage or hand them in free of charge directly to our dispatch warehouse at the following address:
Billhorner Brückenstr. 40
2. Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out garbage can (see below). This symbol indicates that batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. For batteries that contain more than 0.0005 percent by mass of mercury, more than 0.002 percent by mass of cadmium or more than 0.004 percent by mass of lead, the chemical name of the pollutant used is located under the garbage can symbol - "Cd" stands for cadmium, "Pb " stands for lead, and "Hg" for mercury."
