Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Austria

Under the Austrian Ordinance on Waste Prevention, Collection and Treatment of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE Ordinance) that came into force on August 13th 2005, for equipment that you buy from Physio-Control after August 13th 2005, Physio-Control is required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of WEEE that your new purchase replaces, on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis. The old equipment that your new purchase from Physio-Control replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the WEEE Ordinance, Physio-Control is also required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Physio-Control after August 13th 2005 when that equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.

Physio-Control has joined compliance scheme Interseroh to manage all aspects of WEEE collection and recycling in Austria. Please use the following link to arrange collection of the WEEE.
