Note Disposal of electrical devices

Discarded electrical devices must not be disposed of with household waste. Old devices can be returned free of charge to collection points such as waste and recycling centers and / or designated collection points. Old batteries / rechargeable batteries and lamps should be disconnected from the device and, if necessary, personal data should be deleted from the device. We will take back old devices free of charge, as stipulated in Section 17 of the “Elektro- und Elektronikgerätegesetz”. The “crossed-out wheeled bin” symbol means that the device marked in this way must be collected separately from the rest of the waste at the end of its service life. Rechargeable batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. Newer devices can be recognized by the symbol of a crossed-out garbage can. These products must also be disposed of properly. This also applies to batteries and rechargeable batteries: These must not be disposed of with household waste.
