Packaging & Battery Instructions

Information on the obligation to take back packaging material

According to current packaging legislation, we shall be obligated to take back the following packaging materials from end consumers free of charge and in accordance with Section 15 (1) Sentence 1 German Packaging Act (VerpackG):

  • Transport packaging, such as pallets, large packaging, etc.,
  • Sales packaging and secondary packaging which, after use, does not typically accumulate as waste at private final consumers,
  • Sales packaging and secondary packaging for which system integration is not possible due to system incompatibility pursuant to Section 7 (5), and
  • Sales packaging containing pollutants or
  • Reusable packaging.

Appropriate packaging material is used for the delivery of the product and we will take this back free of charge. We thus ensure that the packaging material is reintroduced into the recycling stream. By informing you about the return options, we aim to achieve better results in the return of packaging and thus ensure a contribution to the fulfilment of the European recycling targets according to EU Directive 94/62/EC.
As the end consumer, you may return the packaging material at the place where it is actually handed over, or in its immediate vicinity.
