Battery and electronic device disposal

Old battery / old battery return

You may have purchased an item that contains batteries / rechargeable batteries [hereinafter referred to only as (used) batteries]. For this reason, we are obliged to draw your attention to the following:

Batteries may not be disposed with household waste. As an end user, you are legally obliged to take used batteries to a suitable collection point. You can dispose of your old batteries at the public collection points in your municipality or wherever batteries of the type in question are sold. You can also return your old batteries free of charge to our dispatch warehouse (see below) or send them back there. If you want to make use of this option, send your old batteries marked "used" to the following address:

Bermüller & Co. GmbH, Rotterdamer Strasse 7, D-90451 Nuremberg

Please note that our take-back obligation is limited to old batteries of the type that we carry or have carried as new batteries in our range and to the quantities that are usual for end users.

Old batteries contain valuable raw materials that can be recycled.
