Consumers and ElektroG

As a consumer, you have the following options to dispose of an electrical or electronic equipment safely and responsibly:

  1. You use, as in the past, the collection and recycling points of the public waste disposal providers (e.B municipal recycling centres).
  2. Your old device is still in good condition or can be repaired. Maybe a donation to a charitable organization is still a good way to reuse it?
  3. You have purchased an electrical or electronic equipment from SMV that falls under the regulations of the ElektroG; in this case, you can return your old equipment of the same type of equipment and which essentially fulfils the same functions as the new device to SMV.
