General Information

In the European Union (EU), waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is now subject to regulation designed to prevent the disposal of such waste and to encourage or treatment measures to minimize the amount of waste ultimately disposed. The objective of this regulation is to preserve, protect and improve the quality of the environment, protect human health, and utilize natural resources prudently. In particular, the EU WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC (the WEEE Directive) requires that Producers of electronic equipment be responsible for the collection, reuse, recycling and treatment of WEEE which the Producer places on the EU market after August 13, 2005. Liberator as an electronics producer and distributor endeavours to meet these environmental responsibilities for managing WEEE. In so doing, Liberator is providing the following to inform its customers about Liberators WEEE collection process.
Take-back Policy
To comply with the WEEE Directive, Liberator has expanded their product take back program to cover collection, treatment, recovery and disposal of all electrical and electronic equipment sold by Liberator into all EU Member States on and after August 13, 2005 where Liberator is the producer of such equipment. Liberator will take back WEEE, including sub assemblies, components and consumables which are part of Liberator's equipment, from its customers within the EU.

WEEE Collection Process

New WEEE

if you have purchased Liberator-branded electrical or electronic products in the EU on and after August 13, 2005, and are intending to discard these products at the end of their useful life, please do not dispose of them with your other household or municipal waste. Liberator has labelled its electronic products with the WEEE label to alert our customers that products bearing this label should not be disposed in a landfill or with municipal or household waste in the EU. Instead, please be aware that Liberator is making a return and collection system available to you for discarding these products.
When Liberator-branded EEE sold into the European Union has reached the end of its useful life, Liberator collects the WEEE from our customers and routes it to our treatment contractor in the UK where the waste will be audited and screened for correct disposal. Where possible, the products will be reused. Material that cannot be reused in some form is recycled by Liberator’s asset recovery contractor. A significant portion of Liberator's returns are recovered, either by remanufacturing, reselling and recycling with minimal waste being sent to the landfill.
To help in the proper handling of electronic products at the end of their useful life, Liberator requests you return those products using the instructions provided above, so that the products can be collected, dismantled for reuse and recycled, and properly disposed.

Historical WEEE

While the WEEE Directive does not require that Liberator collect historical WEEE from products purchased by our customers before August 13, 2005, Liberator will evaluate your request to take back such historical waste. A WEEE management fee may apply to such waste.
