Used Battery Disposal

Battery regulation.

Notes on disposal of batteries and accumulators.

Batteries and accumulators (together: old batteries) must not be disposed of in unsorted municipal waste (household waste) after use. Old batteries may contain harmful substances that can harm the environment and health. For details, please refer to the manufacturer's instructions.

Please return used batteries in the return systems provided for this purpose. In Germany, the return of used batteries is carried out by recycling centers of the municipalities or wherever batteries of the type concerned are sold. Please inform yourself about the return system valid in your country and use it for disposal. In the territory of the European Union, the return is free of charge and required by law.
Please remove old batteries from old devices before returning them. Please also throw only discharged batteries and accumulators into the designated containers and stick the poles off with lithium batteries.

All old appliances are recycled. This allows valuable resources such as iron, zinc or nickel to be recovered.

Notes on the meaning of symbols applied to batteries and / or electrical and electronic devices:

Contaminated batteries are further marked with the following chemical symbols:
Pb = battery contains more than 0.004 mass percent lead
Cd = battery contains more than 0.002% by mass of cadmium
Hg = battery contains more than 0.0005% by mass of mercury

The battery deposit: part of the purchase and sale of vehicle batteries

With the sale of vehicle batteries, we are obliged as a distributor under (§10 BattG) to charge per vehicle battery a deposit of 7.50 euros including VAT, if you are an end user and at the time of purchase of a new vehicle battery no vehicle battery give us back. The battery deposit is not included in the price of the battery and is shown separately in our shop next to the purchase price on the item.

This is how the battery deposit works

As a customer you will receive from us when purchasing a vehicle battery (without returning a vehicle battery) with the order a pledge on the legal deposit amount of 7.50 €. If you later want to return your battery as used batteries, you have two options:

1.) When returning the old vehicle battery at a municipal collection point or in the trade, you can have the return confirmed by signature and stamp on the pledge. Afterwards you have the opportunity to send us this pledge to get back your deposit:

Address for submitting your deposit slip:

battery deposit
Ingolstädter Str. 19
84030 Landshut

The deposit amounting to 7.50 Euro will be transferred to the account specified by you on the pledge. Good to know: Many on-site waste disposal companies pay you up to 20 euros for used batteries.

> Here you can download the pledge and print it.

2.) You can also return or send vehicle waste batteries, which you have bought from us, directly to us in Landshut (see address under the text "Take back used batteries") and will refund your deposit.
