Recycling Our Storage Batteries

Recycling Our Storage Batteries | Wattstor


We are committed to being environmentally friendly, so we are providing you with easy and free ways to dispose of your waste batteries and accumulators ("batteries").

The consumer plays a crucial role in the battery management system. It is the consumer who decides what to do with old batteries. Unwanted batteries do not belong in unsorted municipal waste, but are instead to be handed over to collection points, so-called take-back points, from which they are sent for reuse or recycling.

The consumer must be informed by the symbol below that the batteries in question do not belong in municipal waste. All new batteries are so marked. The symbol may be indicated directly on the battery or in the instruction manual or warranty card.

How to get rid of batteries?

  • through the publicly available REMA collection network for take-back, see REMA link
  • for quantities of 10 kg or more, you can use the BUĎ LÍNÝ service
  • if necessary, you can get advice on the free Smart Recycling line (800 976 679)

Why Recycle Our Storage Batteries

Batteries and accumulators contain many recyclable metals such as zinc, iron, manganese, nickel, cadmium and lead. Some of these substances are also very dangerous to the environment and human health, in particular mercury, lead and cadmium. Selected batteries are often marked with the symbol of the chemical element they contain (Pb, Cd, Hg).

By taking batteries to a take-back point, we are thus saving primary raw material resources, especially by recycling the material, and at the same time protecting our environment from possible improper disposal.

Unused batteries that are not sent for recycling via take-back points but are stored, for
example, in office drawers or elsewhere in households or businesses can cause fires.
Lithium batteries in particular have this property. With regard to safety, it is therefore very
important to recycle used batteries as soon as possible.
