Information on the disposal of waste electrical equipment
Environmentally compatible products, services and processes are anchored in our corporate mission statement. We therefore also comply with the obligations of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) in Germany and draw your attention as our customer to the following:
The symbol of the crossed-out dustbin indicates that this electrical or electronic equipment must not be disposed of with household waste at the end of its service life, but must be taken for separate collection by the end user. Free collection points for old electrical equipment are available in your area for the return of the equipment, as well as other acceptance points for the reuse of the equipment, if applicable. You can obtain the addresses from your city or local government.
Distributors with a sales area for electrical and electronic equipment of at least 400 square meters and distributors of foodstuffs with a total sales area of at least 800 square meters who offer electrical and electronic equipment several times a calendar year or on a permanent basis and make it available on the market are also obliged to take back old electrical and electronic equipment free of charge. When supplying a new EEE to an end user, they must take back free of charge an old EEE of the end user of the same type that fulfills essentially the same functions as the new EEE, at the place of supply or in the immediate vicinity thereof, and, without purchasing an EEE, take back free of charge at the end user's request up to three old EEEs per type that do not exceed 25 centimeters in any external dimension, in the retail store or in the immediate vicinity thereof. In the case of distribution using means of distance communication, all storage and shipping areas shall be deemed to be sales areas of the distributor.
If the old electrical or electronic equipment contains personal data, you are responsible for deleting it yourself before returning it. If this is possible without destroying the old electrical or electronic equipment, please remove old batteries or rechargeable batteries as well as old lamps before returning it for disposal and take them to a separate collection.
