WEEE Notice
The directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), which entered into force as European
law on February 13, 2003, resulted in a major change in the treatment of electrical equipment at end-of-life.
The purpose of this Directive is, as a first priority, the prevention of WEEE, and in addition, to promote the
reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery of such wastes so as to reduce disposal.
The WEEE logo (shown at the left) on the product or its box indicates that this product must not
be disposed of or dumped with your other household waste. You are liable to dispose of all your
electronic or electrical waste equipment by relocating over to the specified collection point for
recycling of such hazardous waste. Isolated collection and proper recovery of your electronic
and electrical waste equipment at the time of disposal will help conserve natural resources.
Moreover, proper recycling of the electronic and electrical waste equipment will ensure the safety of human
health and the environment. For more information about electronic and electrical waste equipment
disposal, recovery, and collection points, please contact your local city centre, household waste disposal
service, shop from where you purchased the equipment, or manufacturer of the equipment.
