Battery recycling and disposal

Germany

Collection and recycling of batteries is organized by the GRS (Gemeinsamen Rücknahmesystems Batterien) Foundation, a nonprofit organization created by the battery and electronic product industries.

Collection points consist of both retail outlets where batteries are sold and municipal collection points. Manufacturers and importers of batteries and products that contain batteries pay into the GRS system based on the type, weight and amount of batteries put on the market.
