Instruction in accordance with § 18 Battery Law - BattG -


Batteries are included in the supply of many devices, which are used, for example, for the operation of remote controls. Standard or rechargeable batteries can also be fitted in the devices themselves. In connection with the sale of these batteries, we as dealers pursuant to § 18 Battery Law (BattG) are required to inform our customers on the following:

Please dispose of your old batteries, as required by statutory regulations, at a municipal collection centre or at a local dealer. The disposal of batteries along with ordinary household waste is prohibited and is against the battery law. The disposal is free of charge. Of course you can also return the batteries purchased from us after use free of charge. Please note that only the batteries are taken back and not devices with built-in batteries. The return shipment of the batteries addressed to us must always be sufficiently stamped. Return of batteries should be addressed to:

Chmaberlain GmbH
Alfred-Nobel-Str. 4
D-66793 Saarwellingen


Batteries containing hazardous materials are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out rubbish bin, similar to the symbol in the figure above right. The chemical name of the pollutant is found below the rubbish bin icon - in the example on the left, "Cd" for cadmium. "Pb" for lead, "Hg" for mercury. You can also find this information in the documents accompanying the consignment, or in the manufacturer's instructions.
