Ergotron WEEE Take-Back Policy
The WEEE Directive requires that manufacturers and distributors manage and finance the collection and subsequent treatment, recycling, and recovery of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Ergotron falls under the business to business (B2B) requirements of the directive, and has registered as a producer in those countries where we have legal presence.
The Directive divides WEEE into two categories – New WEEE, which refers to products placed on the market after 13 Aug 2005, and Historic WEEE, which are products placed on the market before 13 Aug 2005. Though Ergotron’s obligation to handle Historic WEEE is limited by the EU Directive, we have chosen to handle both New and Historic WEEE in the same manner.
Currently, powered StyleView carts (and their accessories) are the only items offered for sale in the EU that fall under WEEE take-back requirements. Ergotron is not responsible for the collection and recycling of the customer-furnished computer equipment installed on the carts. Customers are to remove and properly dispose of all batteries before arranging for collection of WEEE.
WEEE Take-Back Procedure
In order to be able to maintain competitive pricing, Ergotron has decided to share the costs of WEEE treatment with our customers. Ergotron will pay for the treatment and recycling of the WEEE, as well as reporting of waste data to the responsible government organization. The customer/end user is responsible for the cost of transportation to Ergotron’s appointed recycler, WEEECare. Under EU law, the transporter of the non-hazardous WEEE must be licensed waste carriers. Please contact Ergotron Customer Service (+44 08707 560280) for recycling directions.
