Disposal of Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
The symbol of the crossed-out wheeled bin indicates that the device must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it must be given to separate collection points.
Electrical and electronic equipment may contain hazardous substances. Please dispose of this equipment separated from other waste to avoid damage to the environment or to people’s health due to uncontrolled waste disposal. Help to professionally dispose the electric and electronic equipment to promote the sustainable recycling of valuable materials.
If the electrical or electronic device contains batteries that are not installed permanently, they are to be removed and discarded separately before disposing of the device.
Disposal Facilities for WEEE
There are collection points for your WEEE established by public waste management agencies that are free of charge. This way, a responsible handling of your electrical and electronic equipment is assured.
Reach out to your communal or city administration to find the nearest collection and recycling points in your area.
If the electronic or electrical device contains personal data, you are responsible for deleting these informations before disposing of the device.
Please avoid arising WEEE as best as possible, i.e. by choosing products with longer expected life spans or by reutilization of the device instead of discarding.
