Your legal obligations

The obligation to treat this kind of residue in a specific manner is given in Europe by the Directive 2012/19/UE, which establishes the responsibilities and legal obligations of all agents involved.

When WEEE comes from homes

Users should give them back to sellers when they buy a new one, so they can be treated correctly. This should be free of charge.

When WEEE doesn't come from homes

The producer of these equipments is responsible of their management. Local authorities and sellers must establish procedures to receive, transport and treat them.
