Collection and Recycling Arrangements in the Netherlands

Under the Dutch Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Management Regulations which came into force on January 1st 2005, Waters is responsible for the financing of collection and recycling of the following equipment:

  • Any electrical and electronic equipment that you bought from Waters before August 13th 2005 (referred to as Historic WEEE), which is being replaced by a new piece of equipment bought from Waters; and
  • Any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Waters after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste (referred to as New WEEE).

For any other waste electrical and electronic equipment bought before August 13th 2005 which is being replaced by an item of Waters electrical and electronic equipment, the environmentally sound disposal of this other equipment is the customer’s responsibility.

Waters meets its obligation to the Dutch WEEE Regulations to finance the take-back and recycling of Waters electronic products though membership to local compliance scheme Recycling Technologische Apparatuur (RTA).

Please contact Recycling Technologische Apparatuur (RTA) below to understand what arrangements have been made for the take-back and recycling of products for which Waters is responsible at end-of-life.
