Electrical and electronic equipment
In accordance with current legislation, LAVA provides the following information:
The following information is intended for private households that use electrical and/or electronic equipment. Please observe these important instructions in the interests of environmentally friendly disposal of old devices and your own safety.
1. Information on the disposal of electrical and electronic equipment and the meaning of the symbol in Annex 3 to the ElektroG
Owners of old devices must dispose of them separately from unsorted municipal waste. Waste electrical and electronic equipment must therefore not be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste and, in particular, does not belong in household waste. Instead, these old devices are to be collected separately and disposed of, for example, via the local collection and return systems.
Owners of old devices must also separate old batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed by the old device from it before handing them in at a collection point.
The latter does not apply insofar as the old device is separated from other old devices in accordance with § 14(5) sentences 2 and 3 ElektroG within the framework of opting out by the public waste management authorities for the purpose of preparing it for reuse.
By means of the symbol in accordance with Annex 3 to the ElektroG, owners can recognise old devices that are to be collected separately from unsorted municipal waste at the end of their service life. The symbol for the separate collection of electrical and electronic equipment represents a crossed-out wheeled bin and is designed as follows:
2. Information on the options for returning old devices
Owners of old devices can return or collect old devices within the scope of the options set up and available by public waste disposal authorities, so that correct disposal of the old devices is ensured. You may also be able to hand in electrical and electronic equipment at such sites for the purpose of reusing the equipment. For more information, please contact the respective collection or return point.
