Notes on the disposal of old appliances and electronic waste

Since March 2006, the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) has stipulated that old appliances may no longer be disposed of in household waste. In addition to typical electrical appliances such as televisions, washing machines or refrigerators, this also applies to e.g. GPS devices, flashlights, and/or other old electrical appliances. These devices can also be recognized by the symbol of a "crossed-out trash can":

You will find the symbol on the devices or the packaging.

You can hand in electronic waste free of charge at municipal collection points, for example. Your municipal waste advisory service or the consumer centers can provide you with information on the exact location of these collection points.
