2) In accordance with §§ 17, 18 German Batteries Law ("BattG") we hereby expressly provide notification that

a) batteries, rechargeable batteries etc. can be returned free of charge to the sales outlet (our dispatch warehouse). You can send batteries back to us, there is no charge for take-back and environmentally-friendly disposal. If you send batteries back to us, please ensure you have paid sufficient postage as, unfortunately, we cannot pay your postage costs. We are only obliged to take back batteries and dispose of them in a proper manner where the said batteries were purchased from us or are otherwise from our product range. Batteries sent to us which are not from our range will be sent back to you at your own expense.

b) as the end user, you are legally obliged to return used batteries.

It does not matter where you return the batteries; you can return them to local distributors or to a public collection point (e.g. a municipal collection facility). However, you are prohibited in every instance from disposing of batteries, rechargeable batteries etc. in normal household waste. A fine may be imposed on you for such disposal.

c) the symbol shown above means that disposal in normal household waste or other urban waste (e.g. public refuse bin) is prohibited. Batteries and rechargeable batteries must be disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way and returned to a designated return point.

3) Some batteries bear additional chemical signs such as "Hg" (quicksilver), "Cd" (cadmium), "Pb" (lead). This labelling appears when these chemicals exceed exposure limits according to the German Battery Law (§ 17 para. 3 German Battery Law - "BattG").
