Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Italy

The Italian Legislative Decree No. 49 of March 14, 2014 transposes the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive 2012/19/EU.

For equipment that you buy from the Smiths Medical after December 31st 2010, Smiths Medical is required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of WEEE that your new purchase replaces, on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis. This is providing the weight of the old equipment is less than double that of the new purchase. The old equipment that your new purchase from Smiths Medical replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the Decree, Smiths Medical is also required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Smiths Medical after December 31st 2010, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.

Smiths Medical has joined compliance scheme ERP Italia to manage all aspects of WEEE collection and recycling in Italy. Please contact ERP Italia below to arrange collection of the WEEE.
