Old device/battery disposal
Notes on the disposal of old appliances and batteries
Everything we do has an impact on our environment and the people and animals that live in it. As an equestrian company, we are aware of this responsibility and we do our best to minimise our ecological footprint. For this reason, we provide you with the following information on battery and waste equipment disposal.
Information on electrical and electronic equipment in accordance with §18 and §19a ElektroG (amended)
1. disposal of electrical and electronic equipment
The symbol of the "crossed-out dustbin" means that you are legally obliged to dispose these appliances separately from unsorted regular waste. Disposal via the regular waste, e.g. the residual waste bin or the yellow bin, is prohibited. Avoid incorrect disposal by disposing them correctly at special collection and return points.
2. Removal of batteries, Rechargeable batteries and light bulbs
If the products contain batteries, rechargeable batteries or light bulbs that can be removed from the product without damage, they must be removed and disposed of separately before disposal.
The following batteries or accumulators are included in our electrical devices:
1320 0018 Led light collar – accu
1320 0020 Led lighting set – accu
1320 0021 reflecting vest with led stripes– battery type button cell
1320 0023 Led hair clips – battery type button cell LR1130
1320 0024 Led light rod - battery type AAA (not included)
1320 0025 Led-light boots – battery type button cell CR 2025
3. Options for returning old electronic products
Owners of old products can return them free of charge through official collection points set up and provided by public waste management organisations to ensure that old products are disposed of properly. It is also possible to return them to retailers under certain conditions.
You can find the next collection point by visiting the following link:www.take-e-back.de
For distributors: The take-back must be free of charge with the purchase of a new appliance of the same type. (1:1 take-back) Irrespective of this, it is possible to return old procucts to the retailer free of charge. However, the external dimensions must not exceed 25 centimetres and there is a limit of three old appliances per type of appliance (0:1 take-back).
Retail: Distributors with a sales area for electrical and electronic equipment of at least 400 square metres are obliged to take back waste electrical and electronic equipment. Food retailers with a total sales area of at least 800 square metres and who also sell electrical and electronic appliances several times a calendar year or on a permanent basis and make them available on the market are also obliged to take them back.
Online market places: Online Distributors are obliged to take back old appliances if the storage and dispatch areas for electrical and electronic appliances are at least 400 m².
B2B manufacturers: In the case of B2B devices, take-back does not have to be offered free of charge.
4. data protection
Old products may contain sensitive personal information. This is particularly true for information and communication technology products such as computers and smart phones. We would like to remind all end-users of waste electrical and electronic equipment that you are responsible for deleting personal data from the equipment you are disposing of.
5. WEEE-registration number
We are registered as a manufacturer of electrical and electronic equipment with the Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register, Nordostpark 72, 90411 Nuremberg under registration number DE76639754.
6. Collection and recycling rates
According to the WEEE Directive, EU member states are obliged to collect data on waste electrical and electronic equipment and transmit this to the European Commission. You can find more information on this on the BMUV Website
7. Note on waste prevention
According to the provisions of Directive 2008/98/EU on waste and its implementation in the legislation of the Member States of the European Union, waste prevention measures take precedence over waste management measures. In the case of electrical and electronic equipment, waste prevention measures include, in particular, extending the service life of defective equipment by repairing it, donating it or, of course, selling used equipment in good working order instead of disposing of it.
