Information obligation according to the Battery Act (BattG)

According to Section 10 of the Battery Act, we are obliged to charge a deposit of €7.50 including sales tax for each vehicle battery.

Make sure that you hand in your old batteries to a municipal collection point or local retailer, as required by law. Disposal via normal household waste is prohibited and violates the Battery Act. There is no charge for you to hand them in.

You are also welcome to return the batteries you have purchased from us to us free of charge after use. The batteries can be returned to us carriage paid. Please enclose the invoice for the battery and your bank details with your shipment.

Returns of batteries/rechargeable batteries should be addressed to:

Nova Gruppe GmbH
Frauenbrunnerstr. 27
75031 Eppingen 


Batteries and rechargeable batteries must not be disposed of in household waste; you are legally obliged to return used batteries and rechargeable batteries. Old batteries can contain harmful substances which, if not stored or disposed of properly, can harm the environment or your health. However, batteries also contain important raw materials such as iron, zinc, manganese or nickel and can be recycled. You can either send the batteries back to us after use or return them free of charge in your immediate vicinity (e.g. in stores or at municipal collection points or in our shipping warehouse). Returns to sales outlets are limited to the quantity usual for end users and to those used batteries that the retailer has or has had in its range as new batteries.
