Environment and waste disposal
The disposal of old electric appliances with domestic waste is not permitted!
Manufacturers must take back free of charge old electric devices placed on the market after 13 August 2005. Manufacturers must label their electric and electronic appliances brought on the market after 23 November 2005 with a respective symbol (crossed-out wheelie bin).
As distributors of electric appliances we are required by law to inform you that old devices may not be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste but must be separately collected and disposed of via your local collection and return system.
Electric and electronic appliances containing pollutants must be identified with the symbol of a crossed-out bin.
In accordance with the [German] Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) of 23 March 2005, we only sell electric and electronic devices from manufacturers registered with the competent authority who are able to provide proof of an insolvency-insured guarantee for the financing of the return and disposal of their electric appliances.
