Equipment take-back concept

The Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) transposes the European WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU into German law. It regulates the placing on the market, the taking back and the environmentally sound disposal of electrical and electronic equipment.

We would like to point out that owners of old appliances must dispose of them separately from unsorted municipal waste. This is also indicated by the symbol of a crossed-out trash can on electrical and electronic equipment.
