Service for batteries in Europe

Legal background: The European Directive on Batteries 2006/66/EC

The European Directive on Batteries 2006/66/EC was adopted in Europe at 6th September 2006. The members of the European Union had until 26th September 2008 to transpose it into national law. The Directive on Batteries was implemented in many different ways and varies from country to country. The aim of the Directive on Batteries is to increase the percentage of batteries that are returned and recycled, since they contain not only valuable raw materials but also substances that are hazardous to the environment and to people’s health. Further, it levies limits for the use of hazardous substances such as lead, cadmium and mercury. The Directive on Batteries requires manufacturers, distributors or importers of batteries to contribute to the cost of disposing of the batteries (extended producer responsibility; responsibility for taking back and disposing of batteries). For this purpose, each country has its own take-back system.
