The foundation Stiftung GRS Batterien has announced that it will be adjusting its fees for the disposal of batteries and accumulators as of 1st July 2019. All prices will increase.
According to the GRS, the increase is necessary on account of “existing legal obligations and the competitive distortion caused by the law”, the burden of which is borne by the users of GRS Batterien. In order to rectify this competitive distortion, the Federal Ministry of the Environment (BMU) has announced changes to the Batteries Act. Stiftung GRS Batterien has already drawn up some concrete proposals on this matter and presented them to the authorities in charge.
