Under the Finnish Waste Act which implements regulations for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) which came into force on August 13th 2005, for equipment that you buy from Waters after August 13th 2005, Waters is required to provide arrangements for 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 Waters replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.
Under the Waste Act, 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 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.
