Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Finland

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 Physio-Control after August 13th 2005, Physio-Control 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 Physio-Control replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

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

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