Return of used batteries

Redemption obligations of waste batteries and general statement from PULS to the European Battery Directive 2006/66/EC

Implementation of the Battery Directive 2006/66/EC and obligation to take back used batteries

In the European Union, the disposal and recycling of batteries is regulated by the Battery Directive 2006/66/EC. This law makes the manufacturer or distributor responsible for the disposal of batteries at the end of their life.

The “crossed-out wheeled garbage can” symbol on the batteries indicates that they should not be disposed of with household waste, but require separate collection. The chemical symbol indicates that hazardous substances contained in the battery are dangerous to both nature and human health.

Batteries and accumulators contained in electrical devices that can be removed without destruction must be disposed of separately from them. In its role as a distributor of industrial batteries, PULS is legally obligated to take back used batteries and dispose them in an environmentally friendly and legally compliant manner.

In order to avoid long logistics chains, we generally recommend that used batteries are given directly to regionally based and approved waste management companies for disposal.

Regardless of this:

  • you can contact your local PULS sales office in the Czech Republic for the disposal of used batteries via e-mail address:
