Information for consumers: Disposal of waste electrical equipment

Electrical and electronic equipment contains pollutants that must be disposed of properly to protect people and the environment. But they also contain many valuable raw materials that can be recycled. Worn-out electrical and electronic equipment must therefore not be disposed of in household waste or the yellow bag, but must be collected separately. 
Used batteries and accumulators that can be removed from the end-of-life device / must be handed in separately by the consumer for safety's sake, as is the case with some laptops and cordless drills. 
 Personal data on end-of-life devices must be deleted by the end user on his or her own responsibility! This applies in particular to computers and mobile phones. 
 The symbol for WEEE to be collected separately is a crossed-out wheeled bin. You can also return your old electrical and electronic equipment free of charge via the online shop of Canton Elektronik GmbH + Co KG, provided that the external dimensions of your old equipment do not exceed 25 cm. For the return shipment, our partner, ZENTEK GmbH & Co. KG, will provide you with a free return label. Please send the old appliance to the address indicated on the return label.
