Taking back vehicles and battery recycling in Germany

Great Wall Motor Deutschland GmbH (“GWMD”) imports long-lived, safe vehicles from its parent company Great Wall Motor Company Ltd. and which vehicles are suitable for recycling. Like all distributing companies for vehicles in Germany GWMD is already obligated (according to Sec. 3 Para. 5 Sentence 2 of the End-of-Life Vehicle Ordinance) to offer all last owners of vehicles a free take back of their vehicles according to the End-of-Life Vehicle Ordinance at the start of the vehicle sales and to inform them of this possibility in publications and the internet.

The take back by a recognized and certified disassembly operation also guarantees the receipt of a certificate of destruction (according to Sec. 4 Para 2 of the End-of-Life Vehicle Ordinance). Vehicles can only be deregistered with this evidence.
