Under the Sweden Regulation
on Producer Responsibility for Electrical and Electronic Equipment
which came into force on August 13th 2005, for equipment that
you buy from Kramer Electronics after August 13th 2005, Kramer
Electronics is required to finance the collection, treatment,
recycling and recovery of the waste electrical and electronic
equipment (WEEE) that your new purchase replaces, on a one-for-one,
like-for-like basis. The old equipment that your new purchase
from Kramer Electronics replaces is referred to as Historic
Under the Regulation, Kramer Electronics is also required to finance the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Kramer Electronics after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.
Kramer Electronics products are very competitively priced. Any new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as Kramer Electronics is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products Kramer Electronics 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 are:
You pay for transportation of your WEEE to Kramer Electronics’s appointed recycler in Sweden.
Kramer Electronics pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the Regulation.
Kramer Electronics pays for the costs of data management and reporting to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency to demonstrate compliance with all administrative requirements of Regulation.
Kramer Electronics 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 facility in Sweden . All Historic and New WEEE that arises from the purchase of Kramer Electronics products is classed as non-hazardous waste.
It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to EARN. In order to meet the Swedish Waste Ordinance (2001:1063) requirements for waste disposal, you should use one of the following carriers (which hold a valid Waste Carriers License):
