Information on electrical and electronic (old) equipment

The following information is intended for private households that use electrical and/or electronic equipment. Please follow these important instructions in the interest of environmentally sound disposal of old appliances and your own safety.


1. information on the disposal of electrical (waste) equipment and on the meaning of the symbol according to Annex 3 to the ElektroG:

Owners of WEEE must dispose of it separately from unsorted municipal waste. WEEE may therefore not be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste and in particular does not belong in household waste. Instead, these old appliances must be collected separately and disposed of, for example, via the local collection and return systems.

Owners of WEEE must also separate spent batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed in the WEEE from the WEEE before handing it in at a collection point. The latter does not apply insofar as the WEEE is separated from other WEEE in accordance with Section 14 (5) sentences 2 and 3 ElektroG within the framework of opting by the public waste management authorities for the purpose of preparing it for reuse.

By means of the symbol according to Annex 3 to the ElektroG, owners can recognise old appliances that are to be collected separately from unsorted municipal waste at the end of their life. The symbol for the separate collection of electrical and electronic equipment represents a crossed-out wheeled bin and is designed as follows:

2. information on the possibility of returning old appliances:

If you wish to return an old appliance purchased from us for disposal, then you have the option of requesting a free shipping note for the return of the old appliance at info@espressoperfetto.de.

Owners of WEEE from private households can also hand in WEEE at the collection points of the public waste management authorities or at the take-back points set up by manufacturers or distributors as defined by the ElektroG. An online directory of collection and take-back points can be found here www.ear-system.de/ear-verzeichnis/sammel-und-ruecknahmestellen.jsf

3. note on data protection

Some of the old devices to be disposed of contain sensitive personal data (e.g. on a PC or smartphone) that must not fall into the hands of third parties.

We expressly point out that end users of old devices must take responsibility for deleting personal data from the old devices to be disposed of.
