Entsorgungshinweise nach dem Batteriegesetz


required under the German Battery Act (BattG)

Because our products may contain batteries, we are obliged to provide the following information in accordance with the German Battery Act (BattG):

Batteries may not be disposed of in household waste.

As the end user, you are legally obliged to return used batteries.

You can return used batteries to a municipal collection point or to any Examion GmbH branch. There is no charge for returning batteries to one of our branches.

Used batteries may contain harmful substances that could damage your health or the environment if handled, stored or disposed of improperly. Batteries also contain valuable raw materials, such as iron, zinc, manganese and nickel, and can be recycled.

If you want to return used batteries to a retailer, they must be the same kind that the retailer usually stocks or has stocked in the past.

Batteries containing harmful substances are marked with a crossed-out dustbin and the chemical symbol (Cd, Hg or Pb) of the heavy metal that is considered harmful:

“Cd” stands for cadmium (very toxic, dangerous to the environment)

“Hg” stands for mercury (very toxic, dangerous to the environment)

“Pb” stands for lead (toxic, dangerous to the environment)
