Note on the disposal of electrical appliances
The following information is intended for private households that use electrical and/or electronic appliances. Please follow these important instructions in the interest of environmentally friendly disposal of old appliances and your own safety.
1. Instructions for the disposal of electrical and electronic equipment
Owners of used electrical and/or electronic appliances (WEEE) must dispose of it separately from unsorted municipal waste. WEEE may therefore not be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste and in particular does not belong in household waste. Instead, these WEEE must be collected separately and disposed of, for example, via the local collection and return systems.
Owners of WEEE must also separate used batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed in the WEEE from the WEEE before handing them in at a collection point. The latter does not apply insofar as the WEEE is separated from other WEEE in accordance with § 14 section 5 sentences 2 and 3 of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) within the framework of opting by the public waste management authorities for the purpose of preparing it for reuse.
2. Meaning of the symbol according to Annex 3 to the ElektroG
The symbol for the separate collection of electrical and electronic equipment represents a crossed-out wheeled bin. This symbol in accordance with Annex 3 to the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) enables owners to recognise old appliances that are to be collected separately from unsorted municipal waste.
