The legal basis for recycling is regulated at national level. Responsibility for recycling lies with the battery manufacturer. However, as soon as the eBike product crosses a national border, the importer (in countries outside of Germany this means the bicycle manufacturer or bicycle retailer) automatically becomes the manufacturer. Because of this national aspect, Bosch eBike Systems can only provide a direct solution for battery recycling in Germany. We offer our customers the best possible support in the other EU countries.
