Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Italy

Under the Italian Decree to implement 2002/96/EC Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive which came into force on August 13th 2005, for equipment that you buy from Physio-Control after December 31st 2010, 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. This is providing the weight of the old equipment is less than double that of the new purchase. The old equipment that your new purchase from Physio-Control replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the Decree, 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 December 31st 2010, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.

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