WEEE Directive: Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
The WEEE directive has been implemented throughout the European Union to protect/improve the environment by limiting the amount of electrical/electronic equipment disposed via landfill. This is to be achieved by the collection, treatment and recycling of electric/electronic waste arising from both household and business situations.
Responsibility for the collection, treatment and recovery of electrical waste now lies with the producer and obliges distributors to allow consumers to return their waste equipment for recycling free of charge.
Nuwco as a producer is responsible for WEEE arising in business situations (non-household). To ensure that we fulfill our obligations for all our relevant manufactured and/or distributed products that fall within the WEEE legislation, we have implemented the following:
