Note in accordance with § 18 Battery Law
As batteries are included in our range, we are obliged by the Battery Act (BattG) to point out the following: batteries and rechargeable batteries should not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obliged to return used batteries and accumulators. Old batteries can contain harmful substances that when improperly stored or disposed of can cause damage to the environment or your health. Batteries also contain important raw materials such as iron, zinc, manganese or nickel and can be recycled. You can dispose of batteries after use either by returning them to us or in your neighbourhood (for example, trade or municipal collection or in our store) free of charge. Delivery to shops is limited to end-users in reasonable quantities and to batteries which are or have been normally stocked by the distributor as new batteries.
The sign with the crossed-out wheelie bin means that you must not dump batteries and accumulators with household waste. Under this sign you will additionally find the following symbols with their meaning:
Pb: battery contains lead
Cd: battery contains cadmium
Hg: battery contains mercury
Note on Waste Oil Ordinance (AltölV)
According to the Waste Oil Law when supplying combustion engine or gear oils and oil filters we are obliged to take back, free of charge, for proper disposal, the same quantity of used combustion engine, brake or gear oils, used oil filters and oily waste resulting from routine oil changes.
You can take used oils, oil filters and oily waste from oil changes to our below mentioned receiving office or send it to us for free proper disposal. For safe delivery please ensure the packaging is leakproof and label the package clearly "waste oil recycling". Please pay the proper postage - unfortunately we canot accept unfranked packages.
Note also when sending that waste oil is classified as hazardous depending on its flash point and therefore must be packed and labelled appropiately.

You can hand in oils there at any time during our opening hours. Alternatively, you can send the used oil directly to us.
