Private households can return defective batteries and rechargeable batteries to traders for example through dealers and workshops. However, this does not mean that the batteries are finally disposed of.
To ensure that these rechargeable batteries and batteries can be disposed of properly, RETRON, together with REMONDIS, offers the complete, professional and legally compliant disposal of batteries and accumulators in trade, industry and municipalities.
Our battery safety containers for the different requirements in the business - whether specialized trade, automobile manufacturer, or recycling center.
Lithium batteries can also be disposed of via retailers or municipal recycling centers. In some cases there are separate containers for this purpose, in others the company sorts them afterwards. Permanently installed lithium-ion batteries are disposed of together with the electrical appliance - either via retailers, recycling centers, or special waste disposal.
Special safety regulations apply to lithium batteries weighing more than 500 g, such as e-bike batteries: They must be secured against short circuits and slipping and transported in special containers.
“RETRON offers individual solutions, especially for
storage and disposal of lithium-ion batteries in any battery condition."

How can I dispose of e-bike and bicycle batteries?
Batteries from e-bikes (electric bikes, pedelecs) and similar vehicles (e-scooters) are considered industrial batteries. They can also be disposed of via the dealers or workshops where they are sold.
But be careful: When transporting your defective lithium batteries to a disposal point, the battery can ignite at any time. Our RETRON BOX is therefore ideal for safely storing and transporting defective batteries in a fireproof box.
How can I dispose of car batteries?
Classic car batteries from vehicles with internal combustion engines (starter batteries) usually contain large amounts of lead and aggressive acids. For this reason, they must not be disposed of with household waste or released into the environment. The car batteries should be disposed of via the car dealer, or via the recycling centers of the municipalities. When buying a new car battery without handing in a used battery, a deposit is even due to ensure proper disposal.
How can I dispose of electric car batteries?
The batteries of electric cars are particularly dangerous due to the high weight, the voltage and the stored power. Batteries from electric cars are therefore disposed of directly via the workshops which also remove them. In the background, RETRON takes care of the disposal and safe recycling of electric car batteries.
Damaged or bloated batteries pose a hazard. They can self-ignite or explode and should therefore be stored and transported in safe, fireproof containers. They should never be carried in a trouser pocket!
Defective or bloated accumulators can also be returned to a retailer or to a recycling center. However, they should not simply be thrown into the provided bins but should be handed in to the staff. This ensures that the batteries are stored properly and cannot cause a fire. For safety reasons, damaged or bloated batteries must not be returned to a mail order company for safety reasons.
From safe storage to proper disposal of rechargeable accumulators and batteries, we at RETRON are your reliable partner.
