In addition to harmful substances that would pollute the environment if disposed of incorrectly, batteries and rechargeable batteries also contain important raw materials that can be recycled.

Therefore, please pay attention to the labeling. The symbol of the crossed-out garbage can means that the battery contains harmful substances and must not be put in the household garbage. This symbol is often supplemented by the addition of the chemical designation (e.g. Cd for cadmium).


The Battery Act is part of the implementation of the EU Battery Directive into German law. The aim is to ensure that batteries are disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner and that battery manufacturers comply with their disposal obligations. The law contains regulations regarding the placing of batteries on the market, their return by manufacturers and dealers, and their disposal (of the battery, not of the manufacturer and dealer…). The importance of environmental and resource protection lies in their content: Batteries and accumulators contain valuable substances, but they may also contain substances harmful to health and the environment. Responsible disposal is therefore an absolute necessityeven more so as resources become increasingly scarce.
