Disposal information

  • I
    • Information regarding the return of batteries, button cells and accumulators

      In connection with the sale of batteries, button cells and accumulators and the supply of devices, batteries and accumulators, and according to the battery directive, we are also obligated to notify you of the following: Batteries and accumulators must not be disposed of with regular household waste. As the end user, you are required by law to return batteries and accumulators.

      You can return used batteries or accumulators to the point of purchase or immediate vicinity (e.g. communal collection points or local retailers) free of charge.

      Batteries or accumulators that contain hazardous substances are also labeled with the crossed-out garbage can. The chemical name of the hazardous substance is found close to the garbage can symbol. Cd stands for cadmium, Pb for lead and Hg for mercury.

    • LED lights

      LED lights contain valuable materials and must be recycled properly. You can find recycling centers and collection points all over the country that will take your LED lights free of charge.


      Lamps that may not be disposed of with regular household waste have been labeled with the “crossed-out garbage can” since March 24, 2006.

    • Light bulbs and halogen lamps

      Light bulbs and halogen lamps are not recycled as their components do not require it. We therefore can and must dispose of them with regular waste. Halogen lamps contain tiny quantities of halogens that do not influence the way they are disposed of.

      Light bulbs and halogen lamps must not be placed in glass recycling containers! Light bulbs are not intended for separate collection!

      Glass used for bottles and glasses is different to that which is used for lamps and light bulbs. Because of this, any lamps that are incorrectly placed in glass recycling containers cause significant problems during the recycling process.

      Light bulbs and halogen lamps must be disposed of with regular household waste.

    • Disposing of packaging

      All packaging must be disposed of separately. In order to help the environment, we are increasingly switching to 100% paper packaging that can be easily put back into the recycling circuit. In the future, all our packaging will include a separation guide that should be useful when it comes to sorting your materials. Please dispose of any filler materials (such as film) separately from the cardboard packaging.
