SSB Battery recycling
Professional disposal of your batteries and accumulators
Most batteries can be fully recycled. By disposing of them properly via Battery-Kutter, you are helping to protect our resources.
We offer you the following three ways of disposing of your batteries and accumulators properly:
- Consumer batteries or device batteries, e.g. Mignon (AA), Micro (AAA), Baby (C), Mono (D), 9 V blocks or button cells
You can register for battery disposal free of charge at the following link: www.wirsammelnbatterien.de
You then have a choice of different take-back systems.
- Industrial batteries, e.g. lithium cells from custom-built battery packs
Here, recycling also takes place via www.wirsammelnbatterien.de (see point 1).
- Lead-acid industrial batteries, e.g. AGM, gel or pure lead batteries
We will gladly take care of the free collection and recycling of your lead batteries. Once your disposal palox is filled, please send us an order for collection or exchange for a new, empty palox. Please use the following PDF for this purpose: Abholauftrag Bleibatterien.pdf
- Monthly variable reimbursement for the used lead of the disposed lead batteries for collections of 300 kg or more.
- For collections of less than 300 kg, a minimum quantity surcharge of € 85.00 is due.
- Once a year you will need to replace your rent-free palox, otherwise you will have to pay an annual rent. For more information, please contact us.
