Disposal and the Environment

We are manufacturers or direct importers and have complied with our obligation to report to the Federal Environment Agency.

Information on electrical disposal (ElektroG)

Manufacturers and dealers are legally obliged to take back old devices free of charge and to dispose of or recycle them in an environmentally friendly manner according to specified standards. This applies to relevant products with the following label.

Consumers may not dispose of old devices with this label in the household waste, but can hand them in at the collection points provided for this purpose in their community or at the ÖRE (public waste disposal authorities), or in the retail store where the product was purchased. Consumers are responsible for deleting personal data on the old devices to be disposed of.

Old batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed by the old device must be separated from it before being handed over to a collection point. Please note our information on battery disposal.

We comply with our take-back obligation under the ElektroG. A partner takes care of the disposal and recycling of the old devices for us via the municipal collection points. You can send us the relevant device for disposal. For this please contact us athello@rollei.deor at 040/270750270 so that we can provide you with a return label. We work together with UPS for this. Information about a UPS Access Point near you can be found here:https://www.ups.com/dropoffloc=de_DEE
