In general, batteries and accumulators should not be disposed of as non-recyclable waste, which is why they are marked with a crossed-out wheelie bin symbol. The following symbols can also be found on batteries containing hazardous substances. The labels for the most important heavy metals are: Pb = contains more than 0.004% lead by mass, Cd = contains more than 0.002% cadmium by mass and Hg = battery contains more than 0.0005% mercury by mass.
As an end user, you are legally obliged to return used batteries / accumulators. You can return all old batteries / accumulators in our current and previous ranges free of charge to all municipal collection points, mobile hazardous waste collection vehicles or your local store.
The used batteries / accumulators can also be sent by post to the following address:
