Entsorgungshinweise nach dem Batteriegesetz

Instructions according to the Battery Act

required under the German Battery Act (BattG)

Since our products may contain batteries and accumulators, we are obliged to provide the following information in accordance with the Battery Act (Batteriegesetz, BattG):

Batteries and accumulators must not be disposed of with household waste.

You as the end user are legally obliged to return used batteries and accumulators.

You may return used batteries and rechargeable batteries to a municipal collection point or to any Examion GmbH branch. The return at our subsidiaries is free of charge for you.

Used batteries and accumulators can contain harmful substances that can damage your health or the environment if not handled, stored or disposed of properly. However, batteries and accumulators also contain valuable raw materials such as iron, zinc, manganese or nickel and can be recycled.

Distribution at points of sale to end users is limited to the usual quantities and to the type that the distributor markets or has marketed as new batteries.

Batteries and accumulators containing harmful substances are labelled with a symbol consisting of a crossed-out garbage can and the chemical symbol (Cd, Hg or Pb) of the heavy metal that is decisive for the classification as containing a harmful substance:

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

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

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