Collection and Recycling Arrangements in France

Under the French Decree on the Prevention and Management of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) which came into force on August 13th 2005, the financing of collection and recycling of any waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) arising from equipment bought before August 13th 2005 is the customer's responsibility. This is regardless of whether the equipment is being replaced by a new piece of equipment from Physio-Control. Equipment purchased before August 13th 2005 is referred to as Historic WEEE.

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

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