Information concerning battery disposal
The following information is intended for those who use batteries or products with installed batteries and who do not sell them on in the form delivered to them (end users):
Free-of-charge acceptance of returned old batteries
Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obligated to return old batteries, so that professional disposal can be ensured. You may submit old batteries to a municipal collection centre or to a local retailer. As a seller of batteries, we are also obligated to accept the return of old batteries, whereby our return acceptance obligation is limited to old batteries of the type, which we carry, or have carried, in our product range. You may therefore return old batteries of the aforementioned type to us with sufficient postage or submit them free-of-charge directly to our shipping warehouse at the following address:
ERZecom UG, Peter-Henlein-Str. 4, 93128 Regenstauf
Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out waste bin. This symbol indicates that batteries must not be submitted to household waste. Batteries containing more than 0.0005 weight percent mercury, containing more than 0,002 weight percent cadmium or more than 0.004 weight percent lead are labelled with the chemical symbols of the metals - "Cd" for cadmium, "Pb" for lead, "Hg" for mercury under the waste bin symbol.
Sale of starter batteries
In accordance with Section 10 BattG [German Battery Law], as a seller of vehicle batteries, we are obligated to charge you a deposit of EUR 7.50 including value-added tax, if you do not return an old vehicle battery to us at the time of purchasing a new vehicle battery. The deposit will be refunded to you with the submission of a written or electronic proof of return in accordance with Section 10 (1) S. 4 BattG, which is not older than two weeks upon submission or upon return of an old battery. You can either return this directly to us free of charge or to a public waste disposal agency return centre (subject to a fee under certain circumstances). As old vehicle batteries are hazardous goods, these must not under any circumstances be sent back to us by post or parcel service. If the old vehicle battery is not returned to the distributor charging the deposit, the party taking back the old vehicle battery, who is authorised to record in accordance with Section 11 (3) BattG, is obligated to confirm the return to you, as the end user, without refunding the deposit, in written form or electronically. In this case, please send the return confirmation back to us, stating your customer number, in order to facilitate the refund of the deposit amount to you as quickly as possible.
