Our WEEE Policy

Logitech WEEE Policy

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (WEEE), EU Directive 2002/96/EC, were adopted into UK law on 2nd January 2007 with full implementation from 1st July 2007. These regulations require that electrical and electronic equipment, when being disposed of at the end of its useful life in an EU Member State, must be recycled and/or disposed of in accordance with the EU directive as it is applied in local laws of that State.

Options and Costs

It is standard practice with volume household goods for the manufacturer to accept responsibility for the end of life disposal of their product through various national collection schemes. Needless to say, the cost of the final disposal / recycling process is passed on to the consumer in the sale price.

With B2B (Business to Business) products, such as Logitech machinery, there is a step change in cost and the viability of collecting large and heavy machines. There is also the further complication regarding COSSH implications around de-contamination, safe transit and disposal. For this reason the cost required for Logitech to be involved in the end of life disposal would be prohibitive.

Therefore the only logical and cost effective option is for the end user to undertake the responsibility for safe local disposal and/or recycling, in a responsible manner.
