The seller’s reception obligation applies to portable batteries and accumulators
Portable batteries and accumulators include various disposable standard batteries, such as AA, 9V and button cell batteries as well as accumulators used in mobile phones, laptops, toys, cordless tools, electric toothbrushes, shavers and hand-held vacuum cleaners.
Accumulators used in electric means of transport, such as electric bicycles, balance boards and scooters, are not considered to be portable batteries or accumulators and thus they are not part of the seller’s reception obligation. These batteries are classified as industrial accumulators. We have arranged local collection points for accumulators that are the size of a portable industrial accumulator. Check the kierratys.info search service for the collection point closest to you.
However, sellers can accept used accumulators that are classified as an industrial accumulator due to their size and pack these into the Paristokierrätys barrels provided by Recser Oy. More information about the seller’s reception obligation can be found at ELY Centre’s web page.
