Tips for Battery Disposal
In conjunction with the sale of batteries or with the delivery of equipment containing batteries, we are obliged to draw your attention to the following:
You are legally obliged, as end users, to return used batteries. You can return old batteries that we carry or have carried to our warehouse (Musikhaus Kirstein central warehouse, Schongauer Str. 40, 86972 Altenstadt). The symbols shown on the batteries have the following meanings:
The symbol of the crossed out wheeled bin means that the battery should not be disposed of with household garbage.
Pb = battery contains more than 0.004 percent lead
Cd = battery contains more than 0.002 percent cadmium
Hg = battery contains more than 0.0005 percent of mercury.
Please note the tips above.

Information about the environmentally sound disposal of electrical and electronic equipment, in accordance with the Act Governing the Sale, Return and Environmentally Sound Disposal of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE):
Manufacturers must label their electrical and electronic equipment placed on the market after 23 November 2005 with a symbol (crossed-out wheeled bin) and take them back free of charge. We would like to inform you that such waste can not be eliminated as unsorted municipal waste but must be collected separately and disposed of through the local collection and return systems.
We are obliged to reclaim sales packaging that is not marked with a symbol from comprehensive waste management and re-use it or to carry out a proper disposal. We may ask you to contact us in order to clarify the return procedures. In order to avoid unnecessary transport routes, we will first designate a local collection center or a waste management company in your area where you can drop off the package for free. If this is not possible, you can send the package to our address indicated in the imprint, or we will arrange to pick up your packaging.
