Note on the disposal of used batteries

Battery Act


The following information is intended for those who use batteries and no longer resell them in the form in which they were supplied (end users):


1. taking back spent batteries free of charge

Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. They are legally obliged to return spent batteries. As a distributor of batteries, we are obliged to take back used batteries (with the exception of products with built-in used batteries), whereby our obligation to take back is limited to used batteries of the type that we carry or have carried as new batteries in our range and to the quantity that end users usually discard. You can therefore either return spent batteries to us with sufficient postage or hand them in free of charge directly to our dispatch warehouse at the following address:


NZG Nuremberg zinc die-cast models GmbH

Managing director: Mrs. Inge Ludwig, Mr. Michael Ludwig

Sigmundstraße 147

90431 Nuremberg


2. meaning of the battery symbols

Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out dustbin (see below). Batteries containing harmful substances are specially marked with chemical symbols. For batteries that contain more than 0.0005 mass percent mercury, more than 0.002 mass percent cadmium or more than 0.004 mass percent lead, the chemical name of the respective pollutant is located under the dustbin symbol - where "Cd" stands for cadmium, "Pb" for lead, and "Hg" for mercury.



You have the possibility to reread this information in the documents accompanying the consignment or in the manufacturer's operating instructions.
