Notice on proper disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)

  • Leave your obsolete appliance at the store where you are buying your new appliance of the same type and intended use.
  • Leave your small appliances in large supermarkets (with a sales floor >400 m2) which sell appliances, and you will not have to purchase a new one in return.
  • Return your waste electrical and electronic equipment at the place of delivery.
  • Take your waste equipment to a collection point. Find the nearest location on the website of your local authorities or the community bulletin board.
  • Leave the appliance at a service center. If the repair of the appliance is unfeasible due to costs or technical reasons, the service center is required to accept the appliance.

 

Selective waste equipment collection symbol

The crossed-out wheelie bin symbol shown on the appliance, its packaging, or its enclosed documents means that the product must not be disposed of with other household waste.  The appliance’s user is required to hand the waste equipment to a designated collection point for proper recycling. The symbol also means that the marketing of the appliance began after 13 August 2005.

NOTE:

Do not dispose of waste equipment with other household waste!

You can be fined for non-compliance.

Proper disposal of waste equipment helps prevent potential negative impact on the environment and human health.

It also conserves the natural resources of the planet by recycling the materials recovered from waste equipment.
