Consumers and electronics law
As a consumer, you have the following options for disposing of electrical or electronic equipment:
1) You use the collection and recycling centres of the public waste management authorities, such as the municipal recycling centre or bulky refuse collection, etc.
2) You can still sell or give away your old appliance or donate it because it is still in good condition and can be repaired by a skilled person if necessary.
3) You have purchased an electrical or electronic device from Torro GmbH which falls under the regulations of ElektroG; in this case you can return your old device of the same type and which essentially fulfils the same functions as the new device to Torro GmbH.
4) You can return old devices that are no longer than 25 cm in size to Torro GmbH regardless of the purchase of a new device.
The following procedure is available to you at Torro GmbH for the two latter options:
a) You can return your old equipment free of charge to our Service Center; Biebigheimer Str. 8a; D-63762 Großostheim.
b) You can register old appliances with a weight of up to 31 kg and the maximum package dimensions of 120 x 60 x 60 x 60 cm with our service by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and send them to us free of charge (not unfree).
