WEEE Compliance - Denmark

Collection and Recycling Information for Smiths Medical Customers

DENMARK

Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Denmark
Denmark has adopted a different approach to implementing the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive from that of other EU Member States. The WEEE Directive is transposed by the Danish Order for WEEE which came into force on August 1st 2005. Under the Order, local authorities must establish a collection system for WEEE from private households (B2C WEEE) and also for WEEE from businesses (B2B WEEE). The collection system must be established by April 1st 2006 and can be in the form of:
  • A bring-it yourself scheme. This is a designated site within the Municipality assigned to receive B2C and B2B WEEE;
  • A collection scheme. This is a scheme whereby a Municipality or company gather WEEE from private households and business addresses;
Denmark is the only EC Member State in which businesses can supply their WEEE for collection and recycling alongside household WEEE through local authority collection schemes.

When equipment that you bought before April 1st 2006 becomes waste (known as Historic WEEE) we recommend that you make use of the collection scheme provided free-of-charge by your local authority. If you buy a new item of Smiths Medical equipment after April 1st 2006 to replace equipment purchased before this date (on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis) and do not want to use the free collection scheme provided by the local authority, Smiths Medical can arrange to collect the Historic WEEE from you at your request. However, the costs for providing this service may be included in the purchase price of the new equipment that Smiths Medical supplies to you.

For equipment that you purchase from Smiths Medical after April 1st 2006, when this equipment becomes waste (known as New WEEE), we recommend that you also make use of the collection scheme provided free-of-charge by your local authority. If you not want to use the free collection scheme provided by the local authority, Smiths Medical can arrange to collect the New WEEE from you at your request. However, there may be an associated cost for providing this service to you.

Details about your local authority's free collection scheme are provided by the Danish WEEE System. You can also contact the technical administration team at your local authority for details about the free collection scheme that it provides.
