Standardised logo for battery collection points in Germany

7 December 2021


The takeback schemes for waste portable batteries in Germany have developed a standardised logo for marking battery collection points. The goal of using a standardised logo is to increase recognition among consumers and make it easier for them to return their old batteries. Collection points, e.g. in retail or in municipalities, can access the logo via a new information platform that has also been set up by the schemes.


For consumers, the new platform offers lots of information on the importance of separate collection of waste portable batteries, as well as on the current legal provisions. And multipliers such as consumer protection organisations and educational institutions can find templates for information texts and posters on the platform, which they can use for their awareness raising activities.


Landbell Group company DS Entsorgung was involved in the development of the logo and platform. Further information on the services offered by DS Entsorgung can be found here.
