Switserland

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is a European Directive which requires producers to make arrangements for the collection and recycling of WEEE. The Directive is transposed into national law by EU Member States. Switzerland is not a member of the European Union or of the European Economic Area, and therefore has no obligation to follow EU policy.

Producer responsibility for the take-back of electrical and electronic equipment in Switzerland is covered by the Ordinance on the Return, Take-back and Disposal of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (ORDEE). The Ordinance came into force on July 1st 1998 and an amendment came into force in January 2005 which extended the scope of the Ordinance to increase the number of categories of electrical and electronic equipment which are covered.

Tait products are sold in Switzerland by distributors. The distributors act as the importer of the equipment into Switzerland. Thus the distributors have the legal responsibility to:

  • Register as the WEEE producer in Sweden.
  • Provide arrangements for collection and recycling of WEEE arising from Tait products that the distributor sells in Sweden.

Under the UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations, for old equipment that you have bought before August 2005 which is being replaced on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis by the purchase of new Tait equipment, Tait is required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of the old equipment. The old equipment that your new purchase from Tait replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the UK WEEE Regulations, Tait is also required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Tait after August 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.

Tait products are very competitively priced. Any new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as Tait is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products, Tait has decided to share these new environmental costs directly with our customers. We believe in being transparent with you on any new environmental costs that our products need to address.

Our approach to sharing these new environmental costs is:

  • Tait pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the WEEE Regulations;
  • Tait pays for the costs of data management and reporting to the Environment Agency to demonstrate compliance with all administrative requirements of the WEEE Regulations;
  • you pay for transportation of your WEEE to Tait's appointed recycler in the UK.

Tait has established a recycling contract with the European Advanced Recycling Network (EARN) and will cover any costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the equipment on arrival at the EARN recycling facility in the UK. All New WEEE that arises from the purchase of Tait products is classed as non-hazardous waste.

It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to the recycler. In order to meet UK Duty of Care Regulations for waste disposal, you should use one of the following carriers (which hold a valid Waste Carriers licence):

TNT UK Ltd

Telephone:
+44 (0)800 100600
Website:
www.tnt.co.uk

DHL Express (UK) Ltd

Telephone:
+44 (0) 844 248 0555
Website:
www.dhl.co.uk

Keuhne + Nagel Ltd

Telephone:
+44 (0)1895 552000
Website:
www.kn-portal.com

For larger quantities of waste, you may want to contact the recycler directly to arrange and pay for alternative collection methods. The EARN recycling facility in the United Kingdom is:

Keuhne + Nagel Ltd

Telephone:
+44 (0)1273 486848
Website:
www.lightbros.co.uk

To comply with the UK Duty of Care Regulations the transport of your waste to the recycler must be accompanied by suitable documentation. You must also keep a signed copy of this documentation for two years.

In order to meet this requirement and to enable EARN to identify Tait equipment upon arrival at the recycler's address, please download the Recycling Label for British Customers. Complete the label with your company details and attach it to a suitable box for transport to EARN.
