Introducing the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE)
The European Union Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) is a producer responsibility directive aimed at reducing the waste from electrical equipment, increasing recovery and recycling rates of WEEE and improving environmental performance of all operators involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronic equipment. The directive specifies that, as of August 13, 2005, manufacturers of specified electronic equipment will be obliged to take back those products at the end of their useful life.
BMG LABTECH complies fully with the WEEE take back requirements for all BMG LABTECH-branded product sold in the EU after August 13, 2005. BMG LABTECH customers based in Europe can take advantage of the BMG LABTECH Takeback and Recycle Program. This enables you to ship the product back to your local BMG LABTECH office for proper handling at the end of its useful life. Disposal will be carried out in an environmentally safe manner using processes that comply with all current e-waste regulations where applicable.
Upon completion of the recycling process BMG LABTECH will provide, on request, a Certificate of Destruction (COD). This will release your business from any further liability for the equipment.
