Information on electrical and electronic (waste) equipment
The following information is addressed to private households using electrical and/or electronic equipment. Please observe these important instructions in the interest of environmentally friendly disposal of old equipment and your own safety.
1. notes on the disposal of (old) electrical and electronic equipment and the meaning of the symbol according to appendix 3 of the ElektroG
Owners of old appliances have to collect them separately from unsorted municipal waste. Waste electrical and electronic equipment may therefore not be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste and in particular does not belong in household waste. Instead, these old appliances must be collected separately and disposed of, for example, via the local collection and return systems.
Owners of old appliances must also separate used batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed by the old appliance from it before handing them in at a collection point.
The latter does not apply insofar as the waste equipment is separated from other waste equipment in accordance with § 14 (5) sentences 2 and 3 ElektroG within the scope of the option by the public waste management authorities for the purpose of preparing it for re-use, in order to prepare it for re-use.
The symbol in accordance with Appendix 3 of the ElektroG enables owners to identify old appliances that are to be collected separately from unsorted municipal waste at the end of their service life. The symbol for the separate collection of electrical and electronic equipment represents a crossed-out wheeled bin and is designed as follows
2. information on the possibilities for the return of waste equipment
Owners of old appliances can hand them in within the framework of the possibilities for the return or collection of old appliances set up and available by public waste management authorities, so that proper disposal of the old appliances is ensured. If necessary, it is also possible to return electrical and electronic equipment for the purpose of reusing it. For further information, please contact the respective collection or return point.
