.: The WEEE directive (2012/19/UE)

Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment

The WEEE directive sets out to reduce the volume of waste resulting from electrical and electronic equipment at the end of its life cycle, while at the same time reducing the introduction into the environment of the hazardous substances forbidden by the RoHS Directive.

The standard states that at the end of its life cycle electrical and electronic equipment cannot be dumped but must be managed by a system that provides for it to be collected separately and specifically treated for reuse, recycling, or other forms of recovery for finished products, components, and materials. In this regard, the 2012/19/UE directive encourages companies to promote changes when designing products, making equipment simpler to dispose of, recover and recycle.
According to the dictates of the WEEE the manufacturer must see to financing the collection and treatment of electrical and electronic equipment at the end of its life cycle.
