WEEE – Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

Modern electronics are made of rare and expensive resources, which can be recycled and reused if the waste is effectively managed, saving raw materials.

From big to small, from lamps to IT, when devices reach their end-of-life they are considered Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). WEEE contains a complex mixture of materials, some of which are hazardous, which can cause major environmental and health problems if the discarded devices are not managed properly.

Improving the collection, treatment, and recycling of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) at the end of their life can

• improve sustainably
• production and consumption
• increase resource efficiency
• contribute to the circular economy

Where should the used equipment be returned?

The manner in which companies dispose of waste electrical and electronic equipment depends on the type of activity and the area in which they operate. In Poland, companies (manufacturers/importers/distributors/online retailers, etc.) have a legal obligation to comply with regulations regarding the proper disposal of various types of electrical and electronic equipment.
