Battery waste management

Dear Customers!

Please note that waste batteries and accumulators can only be collected and disposed of separately from other household waste.

Why can waste batteries and accumulators be dangerous?

Some of the equipment we sell may contain Li-Ion, Ni-Mh, Ni-Cd batteries. The exact type of batteries and accumulators can be found on the packaging and/or in the instructions for use of the electrical and electronic equipment. Spent batteries are considered hazardous waste and their disposal by the user is not recommended. Spent batteries and accumulators may be hazardous waste and should be collected separately from municipal waste.

What can I do if I have generated the waste listed above?

We offer our customers who are consumers under environmental legislation and natural person waste holders the possibility to dispose of their used or waste electrical and electronic equipment, batteries and accumulators free of charge.

We operate collection points in the following shops during opening hours:
