After use, you can return batteries and rechargeable batteries free of charge to us as the seller or to the designated collection points (e.g. municipal collection points or local retailers). You can return the batteries and rechargeable batteries purchased from us directly to us or by mail in a sufficiently stamped form to the following address:
