How / when do I use the WEEE mark (crossed-out wheelie bin)?
The WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) mark, a crossed-out wheelie bin, indicates that the product should not be disposed of as unsorted waste but collected separately for recovery and recycling. The WEEE mark has to be affixed to all electrical and electronic equipment placed on the market in the EU together with your identification mark, such as a brand name or trademark. If the product was put on the market after 13 August 2015, you can put a bar under the crossed-out wheelie bin or indicate the date when the product was put on the market. The markings must be printed on the product itself and must be visible, legible and indelible. The marking may only be affixed to the packaging, the instructions for use or the guarantee certificate, instead of to the product itself, if the product is too small or its operation would be impaired by the marking.
