The following information is intended for those who use batteries or products with built-in batteries and no longer resell them in the form in which they were delivered to them (end users).
Free return of used batteries
Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obligated to return used batteries so that proper disposal can be ensured. You can return used batteries to a municipal collection point or to your local retailer. As a distributor of batteries, we are also obligated to take back used batteries, whereby our obligation to take back used batteries is limited to used batteries of the type that we carry or have carried as new batteries in our product range. You can therefore either return used batteries of the aforementioned type to us with sufficient postage or hand them in directly to our dispatch warehouse at the following address free of charge:

Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out garbage can. This symbol indicates that batteries must not be disposed of in household waste. For batteries that contain more than 0.0005 mass percent mercury, more than 0.002 mass percent cadmium or more than 0.004 mass percent lead, the chemical designation of the respective pollutant is located below the trash can symbol ? where "Cd" stands for cadmium, "Pb" stands for lead, and "Hg" for mercury.
