WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment),
Recycling of Electronic Products
United Kingdom
In 2006 the European Union introduced regulations (WEEE) for the collection and recycling of all waste electrical and electronic equipment. It is no longer allowable to
simply throw away electrical and electronic equipment. Instead, these products must enter the recycling process.
Each individual EU member state has implemented the WEEE regulations into national law in slightly different ways. Please follow your national law when you want to
dispose of any electrical or electronic products.
More details can be obtained from your national WEEE recycling agency.
Germany / Deutschland
Die Europäische Union hat mit der WEEE Direktive umfassende Regelungen für die Verschrottung und das Recycling von Elektro- und Elektronikprodukten geschaffen.
Diese wurden von der Bundesregierung im Elektro- und Elektronikgerätegesetz – ElektroG in deutsches Recht umgesetzt.
Dieses Gesetz verbietet vom 24.März 2006 an das Entsorgen von entsprechenden, auch alten, Elektro- und Elektronikgeräten über die Hausmülltonne! Diese Geräte
müssen den lokalen Sammelsystemen bzw. örtlichen Sammelstellen zugeführt werden! Dort werden sie kostenlos entgegen genommen. Die Kosten für den weiteren
Recyclingprozess übernimmt die Gesamtheit der Gerätehersteller.
En 2006, l'union Européenne a introduit la nouvelle réglementation (WEEE) pour le recyclage de tout équipement électrique et électronique.
Chaque Etat membre de l’ Union Européenne a mis en application la nouvelle réglementation WEEE de manières légèrement différentes. Veuillez suivre le décret
d’application correspondant à l’élimination des déchets électriques ou électroniques de votre pays.
Nel 2006 l’unione europea ha introdotto regolamentazioni (WEEE) per la raccolta e il riciclo di apparecchi elettrici ed elettronici. Non è più consentito semplicemente
gettare queste apparecchiature, devono essere riciclate.
Ogni stato membro dell’ EU ha tramutato le direttive WEEE in leggi statali in varie misure. Fare riferimento alle leggi del proprio Stato quando si dispone di un apparecchio
elettrico o elettronico.
Per ulteriori dettagli fare riferimento alla direttiva WEEE sul riciclaggio del proprio Stato.
