ElektroG (German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act)

The Elektro- und Elektronikgerätegesetz (ElektroG) (German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act) includes many requirements for the handling of
electrical and electronic equipment. The most important requirements are summarised below.

1. Separate collection of waste equipment
Electrical and electronic equipment which has become waste is called waste equipment. Owners of
waste equipment must collect it separately from unsorted municipal waste. Especially waste equipment
must not be disposed of in the household waste but by special collection and return systems.

2. Batteries and accumulators
The owners of waste equipment must normally remove old batteries and accumulators out of waste equipment before bringing it to the collection point
provided the batteries and accumulators are not enclosed in the waste equipment. This does not apply if the waste equipment
is handed over to public waste management authorities and separated there
for the purpose of the preparation for reuse.

3. Possibilities of a return of waste equipment
Owners of waste equipment from private households may dispose them at the collection points of public waste management authorities
or return them to the manufacturers or distributors according to the ElektroG (German
Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act). You will find an online list of the collection and return points here:

4. Date privacy statement
Waste equipment often includes sensitive personal data. This applies especially to equipment of the information
and telecommunications technology as computers and smartphones. In your own interest we ask you to take into consideration
that the end user is responsible for the deletion of data on the waste equipment to be disposed of.

5. Meaning of the system “crossed-out waste bin”
The symbol of a crossed-out waste bin often shown on electrical and electronic equipment
points out that the respective equipment must be separated from unsorted municipal waste at the end
of its life.

6. Manufacturer registration number
As a manufacturer according to the ElektroG (German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act), we are registered at the the Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register (foundation for waste electrical equipment)
(Benno-Strauß-Str. 1, 90763 Fürth) under the following registration number: WEEE20803482.
