Landbell Group company DS Entsorgungs- und Dienstleistungs- GmbH has set up a new take-back scheme for waste portable batteries in Germany, which is operating from its headquarters in Mainz. The scheme was approved on 1 October by the responsible authorities in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate and is now in operation throughout Germany.
The battery law requires producers of portable batteries to ensure proper take-back and treatment of waste batteries that are collected by retailers and other collection points. In order to comply with these provisions, producers must join a take-back scheme.
As a recognised specialist in facility waste management and the take-back of transport packaging, DS Entsorgung will now complement its services by ensuring producers comply with their legal obligations under the country’s battery law and contribute to the nationwide collection and proper recycling of waste portable batteries.
