Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)

Equipment marked with the below crossed-out wheeled bin is electrical and electronic equipment. The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol indicates that waste electrical and electronic equipment should not be discarded together with unseparated household waste, but must be collected separately.

For this purpose all local authorities have established collection schemes under which residents can dispose waste electrical and electronic equipment at a recycling centre or other collection points, or WEEE will be collected directly from households. More detailed information is available from the technical administration of the relevant local authority.

Users of electrical and electronic equipment must not discard WEEE together with household waste. Residents must use the municipal collection schemes to reduce adverse environmental impacts in connection with disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment and to increase opportunities for reuse, recycling and recovery of waste electrical and electronic equipment.
