The symbol with the crossed-out garbage can means that electrical and electronic devices and batteries must be disposed of separately from household waste due to legal requirements. You are legally obliged to safely dispose of accumulators and batteries at the battery-distributing trade and at the relevant collection points that provide the appropriate containers. Disposal is free of charge. The symbols mean that under no circumstances should you throw rechargeable batteries into the household waste and that they have to be disposed of at collection points for disposal.
