Notes according to the battery laws
Batteries may not be disposed of with household rubbish. You are legally obligated to supply batteries and accumulators for proper disposal. For this purpose, you can return your old batteries free of charge to the public collection points in your municipality or anywhere where batteries are sold. You can also return used batteries to us at the above address. We will then dispose of them free of charge for you. Batteries containing harmful substances are marked with a symbol consisting of a crossed-out refuse bin and the chemical symbol (Cd, Hg or Pb) of the heavy metal which is responsible for the classification as pollutant.
The waste bin means: Batteries and accumulators must not be disposed of in household waste
The signs below the refuse bin stand for:
Pb: Battery contains lead
Cd: Battery contains cadmium
Hg: Battery contains mercury
