Information on electrical and electronic equipment
The proper and environmentally friendly disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment is also an important topic for us. In the following, we would therefore like to inform you about the various disposal options with the aim of sustainable recycling of raw materials.
How do I know that an electrical or electronic device falls under the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG)?
Electronic equipment placed on the European market must be marked with the "crossed-out wheeled garbage can" symbol.
The "crossed-out wheeled garbage can" symbol indicates to the end user that waste electrical or electronic equipment should not be disposed of with household waste, but separately from it.
Information about the obligation to take back old electronic devices (disposal of old electronic devices)
As a distributor of electrical and electronic equipment, Funduino GmbH is legally obligated to take back old equipment. The quantities in which Funduino GmbH is obligated to take back old equipment can be viewed at the "Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register" (EAR).
When purchasing an electronic device of the following categories, you can request a free collection of your old device:

A return is not always necessary
As an online store for microelectronics and accessories, among other things, it is a matter close to our heart to point out that it is not always necessary to return old electronic devices. Many electronic components can be reused, many "defective" devices can be repaired with a few simple steps.
If you need help with the repair of an electronic device, we recommend the "Netzwerk Reparatur-Initiativen"(https://www.reparatur-initiativen.de/orte).
