Recycling and disposal
Proper disposal of waste electrical equipment in accordance with the ElektroG
The responsible handling of waste electrical equipment is becoming increasingly important, as it contains both valuable raw materials for recycling and potential pollutants that can cause significant environmental problems if not disposed of properly. For this reason, consumers are required by law to properly dispose of waste electrical equipment.
The PlanE initiative provides a valuable resource to learn about the many ways to easily and properly dispose of e-waste.
All electrical and electronic equipment covered by the ElektroG regulations is required to be marked with the appropriate symbol. This symbol makes it clear that at the end of its life, the device in question must not be disposed of in conventional household waste, but at a collection or return point approved for this purpose.
Other drop-off points for waste electrical equipment
Damaged equipment can be handed in at the collection points of the public waste management authorities or at the established take-back points of manufacturers and distributors in accordance with the provisions of the ElektroG.
