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 1 August 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 1 April 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 1 April 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 Veritas equipment after 1 April 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, Veritas 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 Veritas supplies to you.

For equipment that you purchase from Veritas after 1 April 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, Veritas 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 www.dpa-system.dk You can also contact the technical administration team at your local authority for details about the free collection scheme that it provides.

Collection and recycling arrangements in the United Kingdom

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 Veritas equipment, Veritas is required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of the old equipment. The old equipment that your new purchase from Veritas replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

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

Veritas covers the following costs for WEEE compliance management in the United Kingdom:

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

Veritas 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 Veritas products is classed as non-hazardous waste and does not contain Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) to class it as hazardous WEEE. As the waste holder, it is your responsibility to confirm that the waste Veritas equipment has not become hazardous during the product use. For example, if the equipment has become contaminated during use, please follow the recommended decontamination procedure.

It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to the recycler. To request collection and transport of WEEE, please use the following link:
