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 Waters equipment, Waters is required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of the old equipment. The old equipment that your new purchase from Waters replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.
Under the UK WEEE Regulations, Waters is also required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Waters after August 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.
Waters meets its obligation to the UK WEEE Regulations to finance the take-back and recycling of Waters electronic products though membership to local compliance scheme ERP UK Ltd.
