The crossed-out trash can symbol on your product, battery, literature, or packaging reminds you that all electrical and electronic products, batteries, and accumulators must be taken to separate collection at the end of their working life. This requirement applies in the European Union. Do not dispose of these products as unsorted municipal waste. Always return your used electronic products, batteries, and packaging materials to a dedicated collection point. This way you help prevent uncontrolled waste disposal and promote the recycling of materials. Batteries can contain mercury, lead or cadmium – substances that are harmful to our health and our environment. More detailed information is available from the product retailer, local waste authorities or your national producer responsibility organization.
