Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG)
What is the ElektroG?
The Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) has transposed the European WEEE Directive into German law since 2005 and regulates the placing on the market, the taking back and the environmentally sound disposal of electrical and electronic equipment.
It primarily aims at the avoidance of waste from electrical and electronic equipment, reuse and recycling. In addition, the use of harmful substances in the equipment is to be reduced. In this way, the Act makes a significant contribution to the conservation of natural resources and the reduction of pollutant emissions.
The Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) contains a number of requirements for handling your old electrical and electronic equipment.
According to § 17 ElektroG, we are obliged to take back old electrical and electronic equipment free of charge under the conditions specified therein. We fulfil this legal obligation via the internet portal elektroretoure24. You can obtain detailed information on the exact scope of our take-back obligations and the options we have created for returning old appliances via the following links:
We would like to point out to all owners of electrical and waste electrical equipment that they are legally obliged to dispose of this equipment separately from unsorted municipal waste.
Accordingly, in particular, the disposal of electrical and cold electrical appliances via the residual waste bin or the yellow bin is prohibited. The following symbol of a crossed-out wheeled bin on electrical and cold electrical appliances additionally indicates the obligation to separate collection.
We would like to point out to all owners of electrical and cold electrical appliances that you are legally obliged to remove old batteries and accumulators before handing in these old appliances, provided that these are not enclosed by these old appliances.
Please remember that data stored on the product, in particular personal data, must be deleted by you before returning the product.
Batteries contain many valuable raw materials that can be recycled. Therefore, it is important that rechargeable batteries and used batteries are not thrown into the dustbin but recycled. The BattG Act obliges all end users to recycle batteries.
You can return your used batteries and rechargeable batteries free of charge to one of our shops, to other battery sales points or to the public waste disposal authorities.
We have joined the "Joint take-back system for batteries".
