Information concerning the return of used batteries

Batteries are marked with this symbol to indicate that disposing of them in the normal household refuse is explicitly forbidden:

Disposing batteries in the household refuse is forbidden

Any consumer is obligated by law to return used batteries (rechargable and non-rechargable) according to the German Battery Law. Old batteries can be handed over for free at the local municipal collecting point for such items or returned to any shop that sells batteries of that type. After they have been used up, batteries of the same type as we sell can be sent to us by the customer:

uhrcenter / Esters GmbH
Retourenabteilung
Wolf-Hirth-Str. 35
71034 Böblingen

Please cover the poles of lithium batteries with tape and make sure that they are completely discharged.

Used batteries contain valuable resources, which can be recycled. The environment and uhrcenter say thank you. Batteries may contain hazardous substances or heavy metals, which are harmful to health and environment. Batteries with hazardous substances are additionally marked with the following abbreviations:

  • Pb: Batterie contains lead
  • Cd: Batterie contains cadmium
  • Hg: Batterie contains mercury

Environment-friendly disposal of electrical equipment

  • Disposing of old electrical equipment in the normal household refuse is forbidden. This regulation concerns every electrical equipment and electronic device, no matter how old it is.
