Take-back obligation

If you have a store, web shop or are an installer and you sell (products with integrated) batteries and accumulators, you have a duty to take back the items. That means you are obliged to take back waste batteries and accumulators if end users offer them. Stibat offers you a handy total package.

Legal obligations

Your take-back obligation entails that you:

  • Actively offer a collection point;
  • Accept all waste batteries and accumulators from end users;
  • May not compel end users to purchase new batteries after handing them in;
  • Must take back waste batteries and accumulators without charge;
  • Must ensure responsible disposal of waste batteries after collection.

National collection network

When you join as a Stibat collection point, you are included in our national collection network. We have at least one collection point per two thousand residents in each municipality in the Netherlands. As a collection point, you ensure end users are able to dispose of their batteries and accumulators easily and you contribute to a better environment.

Good for yourself, your employees and the environment

The collection of batteries is an important task. It is essential that this is done in a safe and responsible manner. We therefore supply you with a collection unit that complies with strict criteria for safe storage and transport. And when the collection unit is full, we replace it with an empty unit. We also provide you with instructions for responsible collection. And you can learn about responsible management of waste batteries and accumulators via our e-learning modules.
