Disposal and Return of Old Electrical Equipment

The proper disposal of old electrical and electronic equipment ("old equipment"), accumulators and batteries is important to us. The following information is intended for private households that use electrical and/or electronic equipment. Please follow these important instructions in the interest of environmentally sound disposal of old equipment and your own safety.

1. Information on the Disposal of Electrical and Electronic Equipment and on the Meaning of the Symbol According to Annex 3 to the ElektroG:
Owners of old appliances must dispose of them separately from unsorted municipal waste. WEEE may therefore not be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste and, in particular, does not belong in household waste. Instead, these old appliances must be collected separately and disposed of, for example, via the local collection and return systems.

Owners of WEEE must also separate spent batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed in the WEEE from the WEEE before handing them over to a collection point. The latter does not apply insofar as the WEEE is separated from other WEEE in accordance with § 14 Paragraph 5 Sentences 2 and 3 ElektroG within the framework of opting by the public waste management authorities for the purpose of preparing it for reuse.

By means of the symbol according to Annex 3 to the ElektroG, owners can recognize old appliances that are to be collected separately from unsorted municipal waste at the end of their service life. The symbol for the separate collection of electrical and electronic equipment represents a crossed-out wheeled garbage can and is designed as follows:
