Waste disposal

Battery Disposal Notes

If your sonic electric toothbrush stops working one day, do not throw it away with normal household waste, but proceed as follows:



In connection with the sale of batteries or the supply of devices containing batteries, we are obliged to inform you about the following:

As an end user, you are legally obliged to return used batteries. The symbols on the batteries have the following meaning:

The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol means that batteries must not be disposed of with household waste.

Pb = the battery contains more than 0.004 percent lead by mass.
Cd = the battery contains more than 0.002 percent cadmium by mass
Hg = the battery contains more than 0.0005 percent mercury by mass.

In accordance with European directives and the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG), old devices and all electronic parts included in the scope of delivery must not be disposed of with household waste. The symbol next to it means that the old device and electronic parts included in the scope of delivery must be disposed of separately from household waste for reuse.

Disposal of electric toothbrush and oral irrigator

The Pro Sonic should be returned to a recycling center or collection point. You can also return old devices and used batteries that you have or had as new batteries free of charge to our shipping warehouse (shipping address). The built-in battery does not need to be removed from the sonic toothbrush or oral irrigator, but the device must be disposed of properly. If in doubt, you can contact your local authorities for further information. In addition, applicable regulations and laws regarding battery disposal must be observed.

Please help us and actively contribute to environmental protection by not disposing of your old device and all electronic parts contained in it with household waste.



The WEEE regulation in Austria transposes EU law into national law. Its implementation ensures, among other things, that waste electrical and electronic equipment from private households (WEEE) can be returned free of charge to public collection points.
Waste electrical and electronic equipment can no longer be disposed of as mixed municipal waste, but must be disposed of at designated collection points. This enables the reuse of functional devices or the recycling of valuable components of broken devices. This should contribute to more efficient use of resources and therefore to more sustainable development. Moreover, separate collection is the only way to ensure that hazardous components of equipment (such as freon or mercury) are properly treated, thereby avoiding negative impacts on the environment and human health. Local authorities and manufacturers offer free return and collection options for used devices. An overview of available collection points can be found on the following website: https://secure.umweltbundesamt.at/eras/registerabfrageEAGSammelstelleSearch.do
All household electrical and electronic appliances are marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. These devices can be returned to all collection points listed below and should not be disposed of with household waste.

Please follow the instructions above. Thank you.
