Disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment
The symbol of the crossed-out wheeled bin means that waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) must be disposed of separately and not with other non-recyclable waste. End users are legally obliged to return old equipment to public waste disposal authorities, distributors, or Geberit for proper disposal. Many distributors of electrical and electronic equipment are obliged to take back WEEE free of charge. Contact the responsible sales or service company to return the WEEE to Geberit.
Used batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed within the old equipment, as well as lamps that can be removed from the old equipment in a non-destructive manner, must be separated from the old equipment before being handed over to a disposal point.
If personal data is stored on the old equipment, end users themselves are responsible for deleting it before handing it over to a disposal point.
Disposal of used batteries
The symbol of the crossed-out wheeled bin depicted on batteries means that used batteries must be disposed of separately and not with other non-recyclable waste. End users are legally obliged to hand over used batteries to appropriate collection points for proper disposal, which in particular includes retail outlets where batteries can be returned free of charge.
Batteries can contain toxic heavy metals. “Pb“ means that the battery contains more than 0.004% lead by mass. “Cd“ means that the battery contains more than 0.002% cadmium by mass. “Hg“ means that the battery contains more than 0.0005% mercury by mass.
Proper disposal of used batteries protects valuable resources and avoids negative impacts on human health and the environment. When handling batteries containing lithium, signs of malfunction must be observed in order to exclude hazards.
